[Mediawiki-l] Way to disable columns and ABC-titles in categories?

Different category question: I've stolen and modified the {{category 
note}} Template found on Meta.

It makes a lovely info box on the right, and my main article text wraps 
up against it nicely.

Unfortunately, the actual category list doesn't start until past the 
bottom of the {{category note}} info box.

I saw your answer, and thought "Ah, change it to a single column, and 
all will be well!" But alas, not.

I also found the code that causes the category list to be offset, but 
when I took it out, the category list *overlaid* the info box.

Is there a way to coax the category list into wrapping nicely around 
the info box?

Didn't think so. :-(
