Auto-Selecting Navigation

We use a technique called “Auto-Selecting Navigation” in the template that the Web Office site uses.  This technique allows the current section to be highlighted in the main navigation; if you look to the left, you should see that the “Articles” item is selected, since you are in the Articles section.

This is achieved using only a few simple CSS rules.  Drew McLellan has documented the technique in a nice, concise article: Auto-Selecting Navigation.
