Listing multiple authors in Sigil

Hello,

I've had a quick search, but cannot find an answer to this:

How do you list multiple authors in the metadata editor in Sigil?

Apologies if this has been covered before.

But there's probably no need. Does anything in the real world DO anything with extended metadata?

Yes, calibre recognizes multiple authors, at least.

In the next-generation file format for ebooks, there may also be a converter that uses the less often used metadata as well.

Marvin allows some searching/sorting of extended metadata.
