Well, you could extend the style used when the mouse moves over a menu item to that of the currently selected page. Inside menu.css, find and change:

.sdmenu .submenu a:hover, .sdmenu .submenu a#currentpage{
background : #066 url(linkarrow.gif) no-repeat right center;
color: #FFF;

Code in red is new. Then inside the HTML for the menu:

<div class="sdmenu">
<span class="title" id="top"><img src="slashfiles/expanded.gif" class="arrow" alt="-" />Online Tools</span>
<div class="submenu">
<a href="http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/imageoptimizer/">Image Optimizer</a>
<a href="http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/">FavIcon Generator</a>
<a href="http://www.dynamicdrive.com/emailriddler/" id="currentpage">Email Riddler</a>
<a href="http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/password/">htaccess Password</a>
<a href="http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/gradient/">Gradient Image</a>
<a href="http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/button/">Button Maker</a>

The "Email Riddler" link in this case would be selected.
