This thing converts this kind of strings into a IList<KeyValuePair<string, string>>.

Main value;Key1=Value 1;Key2=Value 2;Key2=Value 2 again;

Data Source=myServerAddress;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;Integrated Security=SSPI;User ID=myDomain\myUsername;Password=myPassword;

This unit test will help you understand how it works:

[TestMethod]
public void SimpleEmptyEqualValue_PlusTwoKevap()
{
    var lang = new SekvapLanguage();
    var parts = new string[]
    {
        "hello world",
        ";", "Name", "=", 
        ";", "Foo", "=", "Bar",
    };
    string input = string.Join(string.Empty, parts); // "hello world;Name=;Foo=Bar"
    var result = lang.Parse(input);
    Assert.IsNotNull(result);
    Assert.AreEqual(3, result.Count);
    int i = -1;

    Assert.AreEqual("Value", result[++i].Key);      // result[0].Key   = "Value"
    Assert.AreEqual(parts[0], result[i].Value);     // result[0].Value = "hello world"

    Assert.AreEqual(parts[2], result[++i].Key);     // result[1].Key   = "Name"
    Assert.AreEqual(string.Empty, result[i].Value); // result[1].Value = ""

    Assert.AreEqual(parts[5], result[++i].Key);     // result[2].Key   = "Foo"
    Assert.AreEqual(parts[7], result[i].Value);     // result[2].Value = "Bar"
}
