Yeah right now the visual-media style sheet just makes the issues red with 
a red border around them.

I can have a script or something insert asterisks before each issue if 
that would help, and then have the style sheet hide them for CSS-enabled 
users. Would that work? Or would making the asterisks disappear from the 
screen rendering affect the speech output?

I wish screen readers supported "@media speech" and CSS.
