Although not true multicolumn support, I've run into a situation where I'd 
like text aligned in the middle of a graphic to continue in the same 
"column" if the text runs to more than one line. The example I'm working 
with is at http://www.acq.das.ohio.gov/acq/ and the text for the second 
graphic "bullet" starts in the middle of the graphic, but when the text 
continues on the second line, it returns to the left margin under the 
graphic. (The effect occurs with both AOL's browser via dialup and with 
Netscape 1.0N via TCP/IP)

The source fragment at the above location is:
