flowing text between divs, especially lists

I would like to have a multi column layout that flows text from one
column to the next, specifically lists. I believe you can do this type
of thing in ms word, for example. There, you set your page for
multiple columns. Then, if you insert a page break, you pick up in the
next column. I would like to insert a break and end up in the next
column. Thoughts?

Thanks,

-Kelly

Impossible with CSS.

Maybe, but the Web is not DTP. What should happen, if you add more text?
The columns become longer? A new column is added to the right
(horizontal scrolling necessary)?
