formatting value lists

I've got a search page that displays all the values in a value list as checkboxes. Does anyone know how I could possibly format the value list so it is more than one column?

custom web publishing, FMP 5.5 on Windows. Javascript is really my only scripting option.

For example:

current formatting:

[_] Item 1

[_] Item 2

[_] Item 3

[_] Item 4

[_] Item 5

[_] Item 6

desired formatting:

[_] Item 1 [_] Item 4

[_] Item 2 [_] Item 5

[_] Item 3 [_] Item 6

acceptable formatting, but not preferred:

[_] Item 1 [_] Item 2

[_] Item 3 [_] Item 4

[_] Item 5 [_] Item 6

Thanks for your help and ideas,

Carrie

Hi, Carrie! I think you should be able hard code the check boxes with the values and labels you want instead of using a valuelist. You can even custom control the tab order using a tabbing index (or something... I forget) option in your code if you want. Of course, you'll lose the flexibility of changing the value list without changing your code but that shouldn't be too bad if you don't have many q's and many changes often.

Maybe someone will come up something more clever?
