Hi, i have a problem trying to style a dynamically generated lists. the list ia dynamically generated with ajax and could be very long. i set a div container for the list but right now the list overflows way beyond the div container.
i would need the list to some be arranged in 3 or more columns. preferably from top to bottom and then to top of the next column on the right, so there is no overflow.

does anyone have any idea how i can do just that?

thanks almostbob, that really helped me solve this problem.

Not a good solution, because it uses pixel widths.
