Sure.  By default, a link from a page to itself is given the 'selflink'
CSS attribute, so that it can be easily styled.  In pub/css/local.css,
one can do:

    #  all selflinks have a red background
    a.selflink { background-color: red }

It's also possible to change the format of self links -- see
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/LinkVariables#LinkPageSelfFmt .
