How can I show the actual menu position coloured?

I have a framed based navigation menu, that works fine :D
On the left frame is my menu and on the right one are the pages.
If I chose one item from the menu, I wanted to see coloured that I am on that menu until I change to another menu item. I think, in all the sampes are the same problem. On mouseOver you can change the colour but the color disappears when mouse off?
I hope you understand my problem.
Thanks for replies.

Greetings from Germany :)

The only thing I can think of that comes close to what you describe is the Refer Item Font Color and Referer Item Background Color settings in the Style array that you use for your menu definition. These are the 15th and 16th parameters, respectively, in a Style array. If you specify a Referer Item font or background color, the selected menu item is supposed to retain the specified referer font and/or background color until a different menu item is selected. I've not tried this myself, but the top menu on the Milonic website exhibits this behavior (the selected menu items appears with a light pink background and a sort of magenta font). I'm not sure if that's the effect you're after, but I hope this helps.

I have setted the 15th and 16th parameter of the style array but there is no effect on my menu. If you want to have a look on my side?

What I want to have is:
If I am on the 'Geburt' Page I want to coloured the menu item 'Geburt' green.
If I am on the 'Fotos' Page I want to coloured the menu item 'Fotos' blue and so one.

On the Milonic Side it dont't work correct too. It work correct only on the 'Home' menu item.
