Doesn't any one have a good way to create a menu which splits in to columns?
Ie. 9 links in a set of 3 columns...

I don't think it can be achieved with CSS alone?
Might need some code to maybe split it up after every 3 and place in a new div? Any ideas?

Thanks PP

Well i do exactly that in a responsive site, when the screen width goes below a certain threshold. I just set the width of my left floated <li>'s to 33.33%. But in ss3 you could also use the template conditional <%if MultipleOf(3)%><% end_if %> within your loop to the same effect. Look here:

Great! Float the li left! OK that was a lot easier than I thought... thanks
