TOC hyperlinks to same field text below

Given a field with a table of contents at the top how does one set  
those links to jump the field down(up?) to the section, where the  
text includes one line paragraphs and the field is set to wrap? if  
you use:

on linkclicked pLinkText
   find pLinkText # need to skip the first instance which is the TOC  
line itself
   find pLinkText # go to the section in the body below.
end linkclicked


The results are erratic.

lineoffset should work but here are wrapping issues

on linkclicked pLinkText
   put lineoffset (pLinetext, me)

  # how do you now scroll the field
   # so that the found line is at the top?
   # when some paragraphs are a single line, but actually
   # many lines on screen because dontwrap is off.
   # and thus line offset doesn't get you anything...
end linkclicked
