I'm looking to achieve a certain layout effect in LibreOffice writer, but
it's a bit hard to describe. I can demonstrate it in HTML:

...but basically, I want a certain style of subheading to appear to the
left of the body of text for which it is the heading. The text should be
indented and not flow around underneath the heading. All such headings
should have the same amount of horizontal space available, and should wrap
if they exceed this.

I'd go using frames and adjusting styles accordingly (of course ;).

Here's what I'd do:

1. Setting styles

a. Standard text: use TextBody style and set it up to fit your needs (ie, wide text indent on the left, etc.)

b. Insert a frame and move it to the place you want for title paragraphs. Set it up to fit the title context. -> Don't forget to have a look and setup the frame anchor, position and size. Create a new frame style from this one.

2. Usage

Just type the body as you wish, using TextBody style paragraphs.

For each title, the cursor being in the 1st paragraph for that title, add a new frame and set it to your frame style. Then set the title style to what you see fit (Heading 1, etc.) and... enjoy!
