You can get around this like so:

ul.toc a::after {
     font-size:10pt; content:leader('. . . ');
}

ul.toc a::after(2) {
     content:target-counter(attr(href), page);
}

While we're on leaders, what happens here?

<div style="float:left">
   Text<span style="content:leader('. ')" />Text
</div>

As a floats width is shrink-to-fit, how wide is the leader? As narrow  
as possible seems to be the correct answer.


Cheers... Mike
