Andreas is correct but the delimiter is <dtml-sql_delimiter>.
Probably better to do this in python script, but here are some code 
snippets to help you:
In the form:

<select name="seasons:list" multiple="multiple">

In the ZSQL method:

<dtml-in seasons>
<dtml-var sql_delimiter>

insert statement goes here, don't forget the ; at the end.


Hope this is of some help, others may want to chip in with other 
suggestions, such as doing the same in python. Anyway good luck.
