Thanks, Shlomo. I now understand it better now, and I think my department 
is fine with it opening to the top of the page at this time.   However, 
when I changed the Reference Page from:  gotopage <$relfilename>:<$pagenum> to 
gotoObjectId <$relfilename>:<$ObjectType> <$ObjectId>, it didn't seem to work.  
Did I do something wrong?

The hyperlink marker can point directly to the target paragraph
or to the page which includes the paragraph. This is controlled
through the reference page (in the case of LOF: it it the LOF
flow, ActiveLOF paragraph).

For direct linking to the paragraph, the ActiveLOF paragraph should have:
gotoObjectId <$relfilename>:<$ObjectType> <$ObjectId>

(in FrameMaker, openObjectId will open the target file in a new window;
but goto/open... are identical when converted to PDF)
