In Word 97, you need to use Text Position on the Customize Outline Numbered
List dialog.

Format > Style > (select Heading 1) > Modify > Format > Numbering.
On the Bullets and Numbering dialog, choose the Outline Numbered Page.
Click the Customize button.
On the Customize Outline Numbered List dialog, type your indent (0.5) in
the Text Position box.
Click OK twice to return to the Style dialog.
Repeat for headings 2,3,4. Close the Style dialog.
All should be well now!
