Position of Menu Item

Is there any built in functionality that shows the current position of a menu item within the Menu control? I need to output a specific class name for a list item if the link being output is first in the list.

If there's no built in functionality I'm sure it's possible through Page.php. I am just looking for an easy solution first.

I think $Pos is available, it'll give you the position of the iterator.

You can also use something like:

<li class="<% if First %>firstItem<% end_if %>">

Take at look at for more info.

I went with the <% if First %> solution. It worked perfectly. Thanks!
