highlight command button when clicked

Hi , I have 3 command buttons with different logics to be processed on each.
Now i want the command button to be higlighted on click and when 2nd buttton is clicked then only 2nd button must be highlighted.
Is it possible???
<apex:page controller="HideAndShow">
<apex:form >
<apex:commandButton value="firstButton" action="{!firstButton}"/>
<apex:commandButton value="SecondButton" action="{!secondButton}"/>
<apex:commandButton value="thirddButton" action="{!thirdButton}"/>
<apex:outputPanel id="one" title="one" rendered="{!firstPanel}">
<apex:pageblock >
<apex:pageblockSection >


<p>1111111111111111</p> </apex:pageblockSection></apex:pageblock>
</apex:outputPanel>

<apex:outputPanel id="two" title="two" rendered="{!secondPanel}">
<p>222222222222</p>
</apex:outputPanel>
<apex:outputPanel id="three" title="three" rendered="{!thirdPanel}">
<p>3333333333333</p>
</apex:outputPanel>

  </apex:form>

</apex:page>

You can do this by creating action function,javascript function(to highlight button) for each button and call firstButton,secondButton,thirdButton methods via action functions.And use Oncomplete in each action function to call javascript function which focus/highlight the button.

Hi,
You can use CSS for that.  Save provided css as static resource in salesforce and use it in VF page after <apex:page>
as <apex:stylesheet value="{!$Resource.file name}"/>
