Thanks! That's exactly what I was looking for.

You helped me find the answer to that too. You can set the title to 
"Title 1", "Title 2", etc. using Format->Styles->Catalog, select the 
style you want and hit OK. The text will become that style (I didn't 
find that very intuitive). After that you can select the style from the 
little "combo box" (pull-down menu box) usually located next to the font 

P.S. - it seems to me that you must have already understood that, since 
I can't understand how a table of contents would work without title and 
subtitle headings. So I guess you I didn't properly explain what I was 
looking for. Anyway, it's taken care of now, so thanks!

    translate into their own language and from then on it is
    something entirely different.
