If you switch tabs on a page, frequently the "currently selected" highlighting is applied to tabs you are no longer on. This can even be seen the on the main MediaWiki page. I noticed it first on Wikipedia.

This is *supposed* to distinguish between viewing the source for the article as opposed to the discussion page, for example...
Comment 2 Matt 2007-10-08 05:26:57 UTC
This is a feature, and a useful one at that. I'm tempted to change this to invalid or wontfix.
Comment 3 Jason Quinn 2007-10-08 15:42:23 UTC
You are right, guys. Mea culpa. I see what it is supposed to be now. I was failing to think about the "view source" and "history of the discussion page because I rarely care about them. I will mark status as "invalid". Thanks for the quicks responses.
