Hi Robert,

There is one (not very elegant) solution that you could use. There are solutions out there that use javascript, but as your site is non-dynamic, and as there are only a few pages, this might most easily suit your purposes.

Your top menu is at line 49 of each page:

<td width="523" height="40" valign="bottom"><a href="index.html">home</a> | <a href="ward4_issues.html">issues</a> | <a href="ward4_events.html">news and events </a>| <a href="ward4_resources.html">community resources</a> |<a href="contact_wade.html"> contact wade</a></td>

which is easier to demonstrate with if I seperate it into one line per element in code view (which is effectively the same code).

On each of your pages, add an inline style to the link that is referencing the particular page it is on. So (for instance) on your 'home' page, you would be adding the style in the form of style="color:#FFFF33;"

<td width="523" height="40" valign="bottom">
<a href="index.html" style="color:#FFFF33;">home</a> |
<a href="ward4_issues.html">issues</a> |
<a href="ward4_events.html">news and events</a> |
<a href="ward4_resources.html">community resources</a> |
<a href="contact_wade.html"> contact wade</a>
</td>

and if it were in the menu on your 'news and events' page, it would be:

<td width="523" height="40" valign="bottom">
<a href="index.html">home</a> |
<a href="ward4_issues.html">issues</a> |
<a href="ward4_events.html" style="color:#FFFF33;">news and events</a> |
<a href="ward4_resources.html">community resources</a> |
<a href="contact_wade.html"> contact wade</a>
</td>

and so on for each page.

For the menu at the bottom, you might want a different style for the currently selected item. So in each page that menu is on, for the item that references that page, do the same (say) style="color:#6D0C26;" ), i.e: on the 'contact wade' page, it would be:

<td width="270" height="85" align="left" valign="bottom">
<p>
<a href="index.html">home</a> |
<a href="contact_wade.html" style="color:#6D0C26;">contact wade</a>
</p>
</td>

As I say, not too elegant, and I certainly wouldn't recommend it for a site with a large number of pages and sub pages, but I think it would be a reasonable solution in this case.
