line-field usage

Subject: line-field usage

I have a wrapper <progress> which contains para elements.

I'm  being asked for an appearance of:

Progress     para begins here, not on line below
	      and wraps to 1.5 inches.
	      Other paras need to follow here

With the code below I get everything I need except
for the first line, which of course starts on  the line
below the literal 'Progress'.

Could anyone suggest how I can either
a) Recognise the 'first para child' of  element progress
and process it with the parent ( a  (process-children)
only ) or...

Some other solution?

Any help appreciated.

regards DaveP

(element (progress para)
 (make paragraph
   start-indent: 1.5in   
    first-line-start-indent: 0in

(element progress 
 (make paragraph
   start-indent: 1.5in   
    first-line-start-indent: -1.5in
    (make sequence
    (make line-field
      field-width: 1.5in
      (literal "Progress"))
      (process-matching-children "para"))))
