With CSS you can use the :before and :after rules, and specify in the
content property that it should display the attribute value of an attribute
named ID (my terminology may not be per the spec but hope you understand).

Here is a sample:

PRODUCT:before {
  content: attr(ID);

Note that not all products support CSS well enough to understand this.
