I don't think any of this will work for the scenario Markus described.

AIUI, he has a panelGrid with two columns. He then wants to iterate over 
a single list, and put odd elements from the list into the left column 
of the panelGrid and even elements into the right column.

Markus, I think the only way to get the effect you want is to do 
explicitly what I described above: in the left column use a table or 
t:dataList to iterate over the list selecting only odd elements. Put 
same code in right column, but select even elements.

Or avoid using the panelGrid completely. You should be able to get a 
result that looks the same by using the appropriate html and css 
directly. Don't ask me how, though: I'm still trying to find time to 
learn CSS properly...
