"multiple" expects to get a sequence of objects
but HTML/HTTP handles only strings.

Either, you must use Python means to convert the string "f1, f2, ..."
into a list of strings (e.g. "str.split(', ')"),
or use ZPublisher magic (in this concrete case, the ":list" variable
suffix) to let ZPublisher perform the type conversion.

In your special case, using separate "hidden" fields (one for
each list element, all sharing the same name) may be sufficient
(as the ":list" is (almost) the default for this case).

You find a concise description of ZPublisher's magic suffixes in
