Subject RE: multiple values from a form

I don't exactly know what <xsp-request:get-parameter-values/> does in
Cocoon 1.8.x, but I guess it's a tag from a taglib that simply wraps
request-object in a XSP-page. And I guess you have to use it with an
attribute like "name" or something to specify the request parameter to use.

I preferred using java-code directly in XSP. Try

String[] values = request.getParameterValues("yourParameterName");

within an <xsp:logic> tag an use 'values' to build whatever you want ;-)
