Section 5.12.1 of the CSS2 spec states:

   If a pseudo-element breaks up a real 
   element, the desired effect can often 
   be described by a fictional tag sequence 
   that closes and then re-opens the element.

How would this apply to an element with an explicit ID?  As an
illustration of the problem consider a modified version of the example
given by the spec:

<P><SPAN ID="someID" class="test"> This is a somewhat long HTML
paragraph that will be broken into several
lines.</SPAN> The first line will be identified
by a fictional tag sequence. The other lines 
will be treated as ordinary lines in the paragraph.</P>
