Question about invisible layers - Adobe Indesign Windows

Designing a training manual and the customer insists on a weird layout for the section headers (2 lines with second line tabbed in and text a larger size because "they did it that way with Word") but that makes a hash of the TOC.

    Default Question about invisible layers

    Designing a training manual and the customer insists on a weird layout for
    the section headers (2 lines with second line tabbed in and text a larger
    size because "they did it that way with Word") but that makes a hash of the
    TOC. I finally set up an invisible layer on each master page and then put
    the header text on it and the TOC is created perfectly.
    My question: does anyone see a problem with this approach when sent to the
    printer? Or do you have a more elegant solution that you would recommend?
    I'm very new to InDesign (v3.01)--spent the summer with the user guide &
    quick start book to at least get familiar with it--any help is much
    appreciated.
    Thanks

    Sounds like a good plan to me.

    You could protect further against accident by making the color of the hidden text Paper just to hide it some more, but that might be more trouble than it's worth.
