Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] end-indent for toc not working?

The end-indent for the TOC that you set is being overridden by end-indent 
properties added by the template named 'toc.line' from fo/autotoc.xsl. 
That template sets both end-indent and last-line-end-indent to the value of 
the $toc.indent.width parameter.

  <fo:block text-align-last="justify"

The end-indent sets the value, then the last-line-end-indent sets the 
negative value.  The result is that single lines get both properties, and 
hence no indent.  Any long lines that rollover to a second line have the 
first line indented and the last line not.  That design keeps the text out 
of the space reserved for the page numbers, making it more readable.

This template, however, should really not be using the $toc.indent.width 
parameter, which is intended for the relative indents on the left.  There 
should be parameters for both the TOC end-indent and the 

So you will have to customize the template named 'toc.line' to reset both 
of those property values.  If you want your page numbers indented by 30mm 
and any rollover lines by 35mm, then you would use these values:
