I thought there would be lots of references to "Tab Leaders" and "Leaders", but alas, no!

I would like to be able to format something like:
Once Upon A Time......................................................................................Red Barn
with CSS.  I am working in Dreamweaver, so I am asking here, first.  I can get the first part to the left, and the second to the right, but the dots begin at the left margin...well, anyway, if anybody knows of a solution or where I might find it, I will really appreciate it.

just create a Simple image in Photoshop, like 2 x 5 Pixel and type in 2 or 3 Dots in it, Save it as GIF, then Create a Table in Dreamweaver with 3 Cells, Set the Width of Center Cell to "99%" and use a Background image for this which would be the dots image you generated in photoshop.

Just wanted to say, Thanks.  Jason, I tried the links, and they seem to work, but not for me and I cannot spend three hours establishing leaders.  I had the dot.gif made and tried before I even submitted the question, but I always attempted to program it into something more sophisticated than I seem to be capable of (today).  I wrongfully assumed that something as basic to the written page would have been provided for or solved with CSS.  Oh, well.

No worries! Do what works best for you and is easiest.  I just liked the hack for CSS...
