I'm experimenting with your theme which I like very much. I have a test blog page as my initial landing page and I have also added two additional pages with their respective menu links added. I note that when the site is sitting on the default index page (blog page) that the menu item for that page is not highlighted (there is no background behind the name of the blog on the menu bar.) However, when I have selected and gone to one of the other two pages there is a transparent background behind each respective page name on the menu bar to let the viewer know which page he has landed on. I would like the same thing background highlighter behind the menu name on the initial page, but it isn't appearing.
At first I thought it might be something that I had tinkered with, but really I didn't touch the menu section of the style.css file. Is there something else I should check to make this work?
Thank you for a beautiful theme.
