flowing text between divs, especially lists

P: n/a
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,

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)?
