For me there is still a learning curve because I do not know LaTeX.
Also, I don't see how you can do this to a story that you import from
OOo. It's a Render Frame, not a regular text frame.

However, it sure does work a treat to produce a frame with left and
right aligned text on the same line. You can drag the frame to change
its width and the text remains aligned to the left and right edges of
the frame.

And Jonathan, the way you do it is Insert > Render Frame, then follow
the instructions in the frame. If it doesn't work it may be because you
don't have the LaTeX stuff installed that Render Frame requires. Go to
File > preferences > External Tools and look at the Render Frame
options drop-down.
