Search [tag1] OR [tag2]

I've seen a number of questions about how to search for two keywords using AND, since OR is the default. I've also seen questions about how to search for questions containing two tags ([tag][tag2]). What I want to do is search for questions containing either [tag1] or [tag2]. Is there a way to do this?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@kiamlaluno - this does look like a duplicate of that question. Not sure why my searching didn't turn it up. – Peter Jul 12 '12 at 17:15
@jadarnel27 The title as it is doesn't make sense, and it is not what the OP is asking. There is no need for searching for "[tag] or [tag]"; the search result would be the same as searching for [tag]. – kiamlaluno Jul 12 '12 at 17:19
@kiamlaluno Just because it's not exactly correct doesn't mean people wouldn't search for it. The body of the question makes it clear what the OP means. I'm not married to this revision, though. Feel free to change it back if you feel it's more useful the other way. – jadarnel27 Jul 12 '12 at 17:56

Sure can.

How 'bout that. [or] must be a blacklisted tag, otherwise this wouldn't work. – Robert Harvey Jul 12 '12 at 16:52
@RobertHarvey, yeah, Jeff confirmed that in a comment a while back. Can't find it right now, but I'm certain I saw it this week. – Pops Jul 12 '12 at 17:00
