Following on from my vertical slide menu with 'current page' override, this is a dropdown menu with the same options. I am not sure how useful this is but have produced this demo to show how it can be done.

The menu has a 'current page' option where on page entry the current top level and sub menu page are visible and hightlighted. In this demo the current top level is 'Services' and the current page is 'Printing', and this is visible when the page is first loaded.

The current top level and sub menu have an off-white background color.

Hover over any other top level list item will cause the current page dropdown to vanish and the menu will act as though there is no 'current page' option. Hover over the items under the 'Services' will give the menu a white background and the current sub menu option will revert to a non-selected color.

Moving the mouse off the menu will cause the current selection to appear again.

Tested in IE6, IE7, IE8, Firefox, Safari(PC), Opera and Google Chrome.
