Today, the cows mooved Flavia Tarzwell (FayeC) to write:

> You see.....I wanted the link for the specific page to remain blue when
> the page was open but it just won't happen like that......

I think the problem here is a misunderstanding of the term 'active'.
Active just means the mouse button is being held down on the link, or
equivalent (being selected in a textual browser, etc.).  It refers to the
link being active, not the page which is linked.

hope this helps.
