This is issue described below (from
http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect3/foindexing.html#d12457e160) describes
my situation...

>I have code which formats a table of contents with the
>title, followed by a dotted leader, and the page number on the
>right. In rare cases when the title of the chapter is a little too
>but not long enough to wrap itself, I end up with a situation where the

>number will be wrapped to the next line, where it is not
right-justified, >but justified (which leads to digits in the page
number being spread across

I have tried both of the following solutions but none get me to my goal
of always having the page number right-justified with leader dots.

>You could set letter-spacing="0" on the page-number-citation element:
><fo:block text-align="left"
> text-align-last="justify">Section title
> <fo:leader leader-pattern="dots"/>
> <fo:page-number-citation
> ref-id="div47132" letter-spacing="0"/>
>Alternatively/additionally, you could insert a non-breaking space
(0xa0) >between leader and page-number-citation to force the leader to
keep on the >same line as the page number. The leader will be stretched
rather than the >generated page number. Of course, you will observe a
little space between >leader and page number. Inserting a zero-width
joiner (0x200d) instead of >the non-breaking space could solve this, but
then the 'text-align->last="justify"' is not always honoured (with XEP
3.8). Setting an >additional end-indent on the block save for the last
line may improve the >result (at least we think so: the last "word" of a
title then often wraps >as well), e.g. in the following:
><fo:block text-align-last="justify"
> text-align="left"
> end-indent="12pt"
> last-line-end-indent="-12pt">Section title
> <fo:leader leader-pattern="dots"/>&#xa0;<fo:page-number-citation
>ref-id="div47132" letter-spacing="0"/>

The best I've got so far when the title is "is a little too long, but
not long enough to wrap itself"...is something like this:

This is my title which is a little too long but not long enough

When what I want I really want is this:
This is my title which is a little too long but not long enough

Any thoughts on how to get there?
