The Get(RecordID) function will get you the record id of the current record. You will need some way to associate the record selected in your global drop down to a particular record id, then you can simply compare the global id with the Get function id in your conditional formatting formula. This is similar to the technique used to highlight the current record on a list view.
The drop-down is used for options, not to select records. But, the highlighting of the current record does give me an idea: A Script Trigger (OnRecordLoad) that sets a variable with the current record ID. That's what I needed. So thanks!
Put the drop down field in the header.
