In the documentation pipeline for Cocoon's own xdocs
this is done with the book2menu transformation.
at line 41
it adds a <span class="menuselected"> around the menu item.

The URI of the current page is passed into the stylesheet
via parameter $resource and compared with the href attribute
of the <menu-item>

For some reason this behaviour was dropped when the
initial stylesheets were set up for Forrest.
