    Table of Contents with right aligned page numbers

      This problem is a doozie.

      In the TOC, the page number must come BEFORE the entry, and I can't figure out how to right align the page numbers. Below is an example of the way the TOC should look:

      RIGHT WAY

      1 Chapter 1: Making widgets
      23 Second entry
      300 Third entry
      350 Chapter 2: Selling widgets

      Due to a limitation of InDesign, tabs cannot be put in front of page numbers -- if they could, I'd use a right-aligned tab for the page numbers and a left aligned tab for the entries. So what happens is that they look like this instead:

      WRONG WAY

      1 Chapter 1: Making widgets
      23 Second entry
      300 Third entry
      350 Chapter 2: Selling widgets

      Is there possibly a GREP search/replace that could be run after the TOC is created in order to fix this problem?
