Is there any way to allow for multiple comma-separated value entries in an autocomplete to produce a comma-separated list?

    Example:

    http://code.drewwilson.com/entry/autosuggest-jquery-plugin

    Any way to use the current autocomplete field to input multiple, comma-separated values? It would be similar to adding tags, including how you add tags in this support form but with autocomplete functionality added.

    I would need it in the context of a resume application form where users can quickly insert their programming languages and technical skills into a field, with each item comma-separated, and the autosuggest to continue to work as each comma-separated word is being added.

    Hi there, 

    Unfortunately, this is not possible at this time.

    Thank you for your input.  I will forward this to our development team as a feature request.

    However, we don't have an ETA on any of our requests due to high volume.  Our dev team will get back to you as soon as there is an update.
