Wrap Container ID around DataFormWebPart in SharePoint 2010

I am working on SharePoint 2010, and i am creating custom display using DataForm.Webpart. I am trying to implement the Isotope jquery Plugin and up to a point things are working ok.

But more to my question, how can I set a div/css ID to wrap around a webpart? Anywhere I try to place the container breaks the webpart.

I managed to resolve the issue by coping the **entire webpart source code** (in SharePoint Designer), and with **Advanced Editing** enabled, I pasted the code just before the end of the page. This however caused the webpart to not be editable from a web browser since the code was added in the protected/safe area of the page.

        <div id="container">
          <WebPartPages:DataFormWebPart ...... >
