Multi column TOC

My Toc is basically a boring list of plates/illustrations but they space over two pages and the list looks pretty awful. So I added some css to make it multicolumn on one page something like this:

Code:
.tableofcontents {
-moz-column-count: 3;
-moz-column-gap: 10px;
-webkit-column-count: 3;
-webkit-column-gap: 10px;
column-count: 3;
column-gap: 10px;
margin-left: 10%;
text-align: left;
}
It works in epub but mobi doesn't like that at all and right aligns it in a single column. Here's a shot of the inspector:

Those nested blocksquotes don't look right. Any ideas what's up and if it can be fixed?

Mobi is a limited feature format

There is a do/don't section near the bottom of the Wiki

I got it better by converting with output format set to kindle, but there is no <div> around the toc in mobi so I can't use the same trick it seems, not without manually editing it anyway.
