Unfortunately, this cannot be done with mere CSS because the XSL
transforms which generate the HTML output do not attach the "id" to a
block element, but rather to a zero-width inline element.  The latter
works pretty well for ensuring that the target begins within the visible
area of the browser canvas, but doesn't lend itself to decoration
