It seems that it only picks up the StyleRef of text that is in the beginning of the line.  How would I do this if my ID's are often in the middle of lines?

Are you using a paragraph type of style? That is the usual way, but I would expect it to be limited to a whole paragraph.
Try using a character style. That should work wherever the text comes in a pargraph.

A character style will do what you want. Note that the default setting for the STYLEREF field code is to display the 1st instance found on the page; add the "\l" switch if you want to show the last one on a given page.

As an added benefit of using a character style for this, you can then use Find to select all content that uses the style. Then drop out of the Find dialog, copy, and paste into a new document. This will give you a full list of all content tagged with the given style.
