MST/Transforms to create multi-string registry value

I am trying to use Orca to create a Transform for a remoteapp MSI file.  I want it to also add a number of registry updates that are necessary for the remote app to function properly.

They consist of strings, dwords, and multi-strings.  The strings were simple enough, the dwords i found a reference indicating I needed to use # before the value.  But I can't seem to figure out what I need to create a multi-string value.

Currently, I am using the components (COMP0) that the remoteapp builds into the MSI.

Does anyone know how to create a multistring value in a MST using ORCA?

"If the value contains the sequence tilde [~], then the value is interpreted as a Null-delimited list of strings (REG_MULTI_SZ). For example, to specify a list containing the three strings a, b and c, use "a[~]b[~]c".
