The only work around I can think of is that you do add the authors in the text > Give it its own heading style and colour the text to white. It will not show in the text but will in the TOC.PPC MMD (10.5.8), MBP 15", Mac OS X (10.6.5), 4 GB DRAM

I'd like to manipulate table of content (TOC) entries in a Pages document. In the text there are several pieces of text by different authors. Each author's text has a title (heading) which shows up in the TOC just fine. I'd like to add the author names in brackets to the respective titles in the TOC but not to the titles in the text. How would I best achieve this?
From what I've read in the Pages '09 User Guide, you can alter the style of the TOC, but the content is identical to the content of the paragraphs taged to be in the TOC.
You might try adding the author names to those paragraphs/headings, then setting the text of the names to white in the heading, and all the text to black in the TOC entry.
