Please add column support (Template: Div Col) to the wiki for super long lists to be broken into multiple columns.
Would make building such pages so much easier. Will refrain until done.

See this page for "sample" issue (super long lists are tedious to read like this)

The functionality is already there, it's the formatting you missed. I set those lists up into 3 columns to provide an example.

So the system is using standard HTML and NOT wiki markup?

The change is good. I was using what is now the "old skool" method as seen right before that formatting - specific to colums not lists - which is why I was asking for the templates.
Besides, that is what wiki-markup is.

Using CSS is fine. Just figured since you guys are using wikimedia, you'd be using wikimarkup languages.

Trust me the first time I tried to make a columned list I thought the same and tried the same way, apparently the Mediawiki foundation decided the standard HTML way of doing it was a better way. I don't mind having less specialized markup being used as the standard since the less of it there is the easier it is for people to adapt to using it.
