I, too, think a borderless table is the way to go, especially if this need is one-time or quite infrequent. Yes, there are manual adjustments to make when the bullet list changes. One decision you need to consider is whether to put one bullet item per cell (many rows) or use a one-row table (however many columns you want across) with many bullets per cell. The latter won't span pages, of course, but requires less fiddling. Alan's idea of using multiple columns has a great deal of merit if this will be a quite long section, or if the need is frequent. But it really requires setting up a template with this in mind -- changing all your "everyday" tags (body, headings, numbered lists, ordinary bullets, etc., etc.) to span columns, and creating special tags for multi-column use. I've never done more than a short (less than half-page) multi-column list like this, and that only rarely, so the table solution was far quicker and simpler for me. YMMV, of course.
