Sorry for misunderstanding. Ofcourse it is up to the user agent to
decide the appearance. If the value attribute should be accessible
from script, then I would wish it was an array when accessed from
script. If it must be a string, then I think it the control itself
should contain multiple input type=file elements, each with a single
value - accessible trough DOM.
Separating by comma is not good enough, as file names can contain comma.

Think about the environment. Do not print this e-mail unless you really need to.
