Hi Michael,

To create new hidden entries

    1. Set the cursor to each location you want the TOC to point to. Then in
    the Insert Menu - > Index and Table of Contents -> Index Entry
    - Index type : Table of Contents
       - Entry : (text you want to appear on the TOC page)
       - level : if you want to style some entries differently set them to a
       different level, then assign the alternate style in the TOC setup.
       - Each time you click OK, you create an entry that matches the field
       values. If you have fields set to display you can see a light
grey block.
       - Extra entries may be deleted with the backspace or delete key as a
       character in the paragraph.

       2. Set the cursor to the point you want the TOC to appear. Create a
    TOC as normal, but choose Index marks instead of 'Additional Styles.'

For creating the hidden "Dedication" reference target, I think your approach is the right one. 
However, it's also important to respect Dave's (OU) existing outline structure, so wouldn't it be better to 
built the TOC on a combination of structure (the usual default indexing basis) /plus/ index mark(s), rather 
than going to the extra effort of making index marks when there is an existing structure to the document?

Kind regards,
