If I use http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/*sql* I get all tags which include sql. But I want all tags which include sql or vb6 So I tried this:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/*sql*+or+vb6

But I am getting like this:
enter image description here

So I need or between *sql* and vb6 like this:

enter image description here

Is it possible?
