Right-hand alignment of numbers in table of contents?

My table of contents is aligned left, so that the headings line up exactly.
But, page numbers on the right side of the page are out of alignment by
fractions of a character. Any ideas?

Maybe the tab stop at the right side is a left tab instead of a right
tab? Or you're using a fancy font in which numbers don't all have the
same width?

I am no Word expert by any means, but I have solved this problem
occasionally by using periods between the name of the chapter and the number
of the chapter.

Like this:

13th Day........26
Go or No Go...32
Last Chance...45

By default, the TOC styles have a period leader. Misalignment of the page
numbers suggests a problem with the tab stop setting for one TOC level or
another.
