Help designing a list

Consider the following SharePoint list.  [Linked Initiative] is a lookup column based on the [Initiative] column.

Initiative              Linked Initiative
----------              -----------------
Research schools        Buy a house
Plan a trip
Find a realtor          Buy a house
Purchase airfare        Plan a trip
Book a hotel            Plan a trip
Buy a house
Research neighborhoods  Buy a house
Find a rental car       Plan a trip

Open in new window

Using a list view or data view web part (or anything else) I'd like to be able to display the output on a page like this:

Plan a trip
    Purchase airfare
    Book a hotel
    Find a rental car
Buy a house
    Research neighborhoods
    Research schools
    Find a realtor

Can I do this the way I have the list designed?  If so, what's the best way to proceed?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
