I have a ul filled with links in my layout/application.html.erb and want the current location link be marked with class="active".

Now I'm using:

<%= link_to 'About Us', { :controller => 'aboutus' }, :class => "menu#{' active' if params[:controller] == 'aboutus'}" %>

But it looks pretty nasty to me.

Anyone has a better idea?
