Thanks! It works for the main links, but not the sub links. I am using pages rather than categories; do I need to switch or do something differently in order to make the main tab stay highlighted when I navigate to sub pages of each tab?
Also, if you have time, about the second question pertaining to my google news feed being formatted funky, it was moved here: http://www.socialjusticenow.org/category/googlenewssj/ - Basically the excerpt is being stripped of it's formatting somewhere along the line. I'd like to use the actual article text if possible for just this feed as it looks great once I click through to it.
Again, I wont be offended at all if we don't get to the second question. Any help you give is very generous. Also, for the sake of anyone else reading this: MesoColumn is the best free theme I've ever used in my life--I'd call it a tie with the best non-gratis theme even. This guy Richie is a wordpress hero like none other--even if my question doesn't get resolved, that's the key thing to take away from reading this. :)
