I have a simple CSS list for navigation. I want to highlight the active link using CSS. I think I need to have an id for each link so that a GET request would identify which link was clicked. The reason is, I am going to use GET to retrieve content pertaining to that link. so, when the content shows up I want the active link to change color (using Javascript, ideally)

I'm guessing this is easy but I don't know javascript well enough to write a function to do this.

any help is appreciated.
