a:active not working in navigation

I'm new to this so it's probably a really stupid mistake I've made, but I'd be really grateful if nyone can help! I'm making a website for which I'm using a style sheet. At the top of the page there is a navigation bar which has a black background and is grey when hovered over but should also be grey when a link is active. As far as I can tell, it should be working, but it isn't. Any ideas?
Here's the CSS

How can I centre my navigation menu?

Hi there,

I hope its ok to ask for some help here with my wordpress website. I've asked
for advice on their forum but had no luck and thought this might be a good place
to ask.

So my website is


I would love to centre the navigation menu at the top, underneath the header, but
I can't work out what I need to change. When I remove the float: right; option then
all the menu buttons come to the center but they also run vertically down instead
of horizontally across.

Any help would be much appreciated!



Navigation float/position issues.. Help?

Hey there, I'm having some trouble getting my navigation to stay within the header(100% width) when the page is made smaller. I want it to move dynamically with the page, and remain about 30px away from the right hand side. I tried to set a min-width so when the page gets smaller than lets say 1000px, it locks in place and doesn't drop float down.

Best Way to Make HTML Buttons

I am decent at using CSS and HTML, but I am trying to find the best way to make nav buttons that will remain "clicked down" once you get to the linked page. I have been searching all over the web and haven't found the best, most straight forward response. I am trying to do this without using images. Do I need to use Java or can this be done using CSS? Thanks for any help!
