Thanks for trying, Bruce. That earlier question you refer to was for a
similar situation and the answer resolved that one at the time (it was
my question even then!) but not the precise one I am facing now.
The problem, you see, is that \startalignment only offers a few key
words like flushleft, middle etc. and not what I need this time, which
is a precise indentation feature like .5cm. I suppose my real problem is
not being sufficiently au fait with how definitions work. I just can't
seem to get a definition that gives me a result like
author ..................................... page number
the \startalignment approach with flushleft would not give me the
indentation obviously, and middle does not work for what I need, and
either of them also pushes the page number line down onto the next line,
which I don't want. I tried \skip .5cm, so:
But the \hskip is ignored at the beginning of a line. I wonder if there
is something else I can substitute it for?
