The workaround I've found is to use non-breaking spaces in the heading
to control the breaking, and then set the Paragraph Definition for the
TOC version of that header to have a .5 in (or whatever) left indent.

Dear Scott - Mon cher Scott :)

I've run into this situation before, and I think there's no automatic
workaround to it. You should be able to add a tab character to the
second line so that the page number is aligned, but you'll have to do
that by hand. I often had this situation when I wrote books for Oracle
Corp., and that was their standard operating procedure.

I figure that if Oracle's entire cadre of FM documentation production
specialists can't come up with a solution, there isn't one.

Subject: Table of Contents Question

I have a table of contents that is dynamically generated from the
contents of a book (I do this for 12 different books).  At times the
length of the text in the element I have to use to create the entries in
the table of contents is too long and it wraps to a second line.

Is there a way to elegantly handle this situation?

What I would like to be able to do is set up a tab so that when the text
wraps there is a little bit of an indent to show that the new line is
still part of the original element.

Thanks in advance,
