You mean some other encoding but not the UTF-8? But I could run it in
Emacs and edit the list without problems just as UTF-8. Which name

I do not have a clue how Emacs website is maintained.

I know how are my pages maintained, so I have templates and inside of
templates I can even run scripts, or Emacs functions, and such make
the output and it is inserted into the page, and later often
formatted by markdown to HTML.

When static page generator starts generating, script is run and I
don't need to take care of it.

For me that would be matter of few minutes to generate list of
authors, with some "," (commas) in between or similar.
