Hi all

I have a standard tabbing section to divide content into separate tabs, similar to the jQuery tabs.
My problem, how can I keep the active tab open when a user comes back to the page without them needing to re-select the tab.

Is this a cookie issue?
How can I modify the code below?

Code JavaScript:
$(document).ready(function() {
    //Default Action
    $(".tab_content").hide(); //Hide all content
    $("ul.tabs li:first").addClass("active").show(); //Activate first tab
    $(".tab_content:first").show(); //Show first tab content
    //On Click Event
    $("ul.tabs li").click(function() {
        $("ul.tabs li").removeClass("active"); //Remove any "active" class
        $(this).addClass("active"); //Add "active" class to selected tab
        $(".tab_content").hide(); //Hide all tab content
        var activeTab = $(this).find("a").attr("href"); //Find the rel attribute value to identify the active tab + content
        $(activeTab).fadeIn(); //Fade in the active content
        return false;

For Reference:
HTML Code:
<ul class="tabs">
<li><a href="#welcome">welcome</a></li>
<li><a href="#one">tab 01</a></li>
<li><a href="#two">tab 02</a></li>

<section class="tab_container">
<article id="welcome" class="tab_content"><p>content</p></article>
<article id="one" class="tab_content"><p>content</p></article>
<article id="two" class="tab_content"><p>content</p></article>
Many thanks.
