There are two ways. I recommend newline separation:

[loop lr=1 list=|
Sun Microsystems
Texas Instruments
	[loop-code] <BR>

Or if you already have a quoted list:

[loop quoted=1 list=|"Sun Microsystems" "Texas Instruments"|]
    [loop-code] <BR>

No comma in the above. It is better to do this to avoid possible 
quote collision:

[tmp quoted_list]"Sun Microsystems" "Texas Instruments"[/tmp]
[loop quoted=1 list="[scratch quoted_list]"]
    [loop-code] <BR>

Same applies for the lr=1 version; if you pre-set it in scratch
then you avoid flakiness due to quoting problems.
