Man, it's been a long time since I posted here...

I'm having issues with PHP generating what I need to. I have a very simple PHP setup: I have header.php, index.php and footer.php.

Here's index.php (www.kayeskinner.com/ks2/index.php
PHP Code:
<?php
$current 
'index';

include (
'header.php');


?>

<div id="content">
    <p>Blah, blah, blah</p>
</div>

<?php
include ('footer.php');
?>
The header.php file contains virtually all of the structure of the page, including the following code for my links bar:

PHP Code:
                <ul>
                  <li class="links" <?php if ($current == 'index') echo 'id="currentlink"' ?>><a href="index.php">home</a></li>
                  <li class="links" <?php if ($current == 'music') echo 'id="currentlink"' ?>><a href="music.php">music</a></li>
                  <?php if ($current == 'music') echo '
                  <li class="musiclinks"><a href="#head">wind ensemble</a></li>
                  <li class="musiclinks"><a href="#choir"><acronym title="Soprano Alto Tenor Bass">satb</acronym> choir</a></li>
                  <li class="musiclinks"><a href="#misc">solo/ensemble</a></li>
                  ' 
?>
                  <li class="links" <?php if ($current == 'bio') echo 'id="currentlink"' ?>><a href="bio.php">bio</a></li>
                  <li class="links" <?php if ($current == 'media') echo 'id="currentlink"' ?>><a href="media.php">media</a></li>
                  <li class="links" <?php if ($current == 'contact') echo 'id="currentlink"' ?>><a href="contact.php">contact</a></li>
                  <li class="links"><a href="http://www.facebook.com/benkayeskinner" target="_blank">facebook</a></li>
                  </ul>
Except that I'm not getting those "currentlink" IDs to display; neither do the "musiclinks" classes on the music.php page. Thoughts?
