I don't follow. 

Given this document foo.html:

<!doctype HTML system html4.dtd>
<h1 id="a123">some text</h1>
<div id="b234"><p>more text</div>
<a name="c345"><p>and yet more</a>

How would I write a stylesheet to do the right thing each time when the
document is referenced on three separate occasions as:
