 There seems to be a problem with the styling of the FSE navigation menu.

 Looking at the WordPress website https://wordpress.org/ the navigation
 menu is styled (in blue) to show which page you are on and in the case of
 a nested menu item it shows both the the subpage and the ancestor menu

 But this isn't working reliably on FSE.

 With a similar menu I have found that the styling is absent in the
 following cases...

     the homepage which was the 'Front Page'
     with a nested menu of 2 subpages the styling was absent on the first
 subpage which was the 'Posts Page'
     with a nested menu and a subpage selected the styling is absent on the

 Styling is provided by "current-menu-item" Class in the li tag.

 "aria-current='page'" is also absent from the link when the styling isn't

 Maybe someone can confirm this is a bug - thanks.
