I have the below code. I am trying to highlight the link when i click a link. it works fine when i hover over the link. But it does not work when i release the mouse. I want the link name to be highlighted as long as i am on the page.

Please advise.

HTML Code:
a {
a:hover,a.current {

<ul id="navigation">
<li><a href="highlightLink.php">Home Page</a></li>
    <li><a class="current" href="highlightLink.php">About Me</a></li>
