Hi

To display all the values of a metadata element in a format statement,
use [sibling(All'; '):dc.Creator] instead of [dc.Creator].

The FAQ entry on customising collections has more information:
http://www.greenstone.org/cgi-bin/library?e=p-en-faq-utfZz-8&a=p&p=faqcustomize#customizeformat

cheers,
katherine
