I often want to cross refernce headings in a document e.g "this will require extra work, as detailed in New Functionality". When I inset such a X-ref, it just shows as normal text and gives no indication it's a link unless you mouse-over it, which isn't helpful when printing.

Can I easily control some styles for X-refs, such as underlining? What about causing numbering from headings "See 1.2.3 Bananas for more information"?

You can get cross-references displayed with a "shading". To do so, go to Tools -> Options, View tab and select "Always" from the combo box under Field Shading.
