Deb - I don't have any sources with 3 authors, but I did have one with both
an editor and a compiler. To get the correct results for the SecCit and the
Bib, I ended up hard coding them into the Formatting.
The CMS says for short cites, "if a work has two or three authors, the last
name of each should be given; for more than three authors, give the last
name of the first author followed by et al. or and others.

Thanks Beth for the lookup. What you sent tells me what I am seeing when
you have more than 2 authors is slightly messed up.
Bill, this might be something you want to look at. Here's what I'm getting
(going to use the actual author's names here)
This is what I entered with Author chosen as type (has a comma before and):
Janes K. Wollard, Delma (Kincheloe) Ashcraft, and Kenneth Laurent
Janes K. Wollard, Delma (Kincheloe) Ashcraft, and Kenneth Laurent,
Ashcraft and Laurent,
Ashcraft, Janes K. Wollard, Delma (Kincheloe), and Kenneth Laurent.
Slightly different format entered with Author chosen as type once again
(doesn't have a comma before and):
Janes K. Wollard, Delma (Kincheloe) Ashcraft and Kenneth Laurent
Janes K. Wollard, Delma (Kincheloe) Ashcraft and Kenneth Laurent,
Wollard and Laurent,
Wollard, Janes K., Delma (Kincheloe) Ashcraft and Kenneth Laurent.
The second version comes closest, except for the secondary cit. I'm
thinking it should read "Wollard, Ashcraft and Laurent"
