Creating multi-column lists is very tricky in general. Usually for multi-column lists to work, you need to know how many items you have in a column before it can work and assign each item in the list specific CSS.

Long articles have been written on how to do this: http://www.alistapart.com/articles/multicolumnlists/

What makes it even more complicated is how to handle child categories.

So the first questions that need to be answered are:
1. are you showing child categories?
2. can you forsake the hierarchical display of your categories
3. how many categories will be displayed
4. are you willing to forget a <ul> list and use a <div>?
