TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Well I don't know why it's a cheat. There's really no moral issue in word processing, is there? :) It works, and it works very neatly. But the original poster seemed to want to have side heads appear in the TOC and Word's TOC won't pick up a style from within a table.
I use a 2-column table with no borders; (1.08" and 5.0") and my "side head" contains a label, where appropriate, for the paragraph next to it. It isn't a heading level, just a style called Label. All my actual TOC-type headings are outside the tables, just like figure and table captions. The tables are only for the body of the text--and for regular tables, of course.
If this is cheating, I can live with it. My conscience is clear.

3. Tables. This is a bit of a cheat, but if you use a two-celled table
with invisible borders, you get the same effect.
