Creating Multiline Indentation

Using a style property called "mc-multiline-indent" you can specify additional indentation for content that wraps to more than one line. Although this property can be used for any block-level element (such as paragraphs), it is most useful when applied to print index, table of contents (TOC), and mini-TOC entries. See Editing the Look of Your Print Index, Editing the Look of a Print TOC, and Editing the Look of a Mini-TOC.
