Probably a silly question, but I cannot see it. How do I search for stackoverflow questions that have, for example, both a "junit" and a "logging" tags set ?
Combing the tags with "obvious suspects" (" ", "+", "&", "and", etc.) does not work for me.

does work for me. Simply use + in the URL and a space in the search box. So for this example, just type

[junit] [tagging]

into the search box.

one caveat: if any of the tags contains a plus you must escape it, and you must use spaces to delimit – Jeff Atwood Nov 30 '09 at 19:44
Just a question though: How exactly is a literal + escaped in the search box? The obvious %2b didn't work, \+ or ++ don't work either. Am I missing something here? – Joey Nov 30 '09 at 19:54
I was referring to the /questions/tagged syntax, sorry if I wasn't clear – Jeff Atwood Nov 30 '09 at 21:40
Well, but typing [foo+bar] into the search box also splits into the tags »foo« and »bar« ... so apparently no escaping can save a + in a tag from being interpreted wrongly? – Joey Dec 1 '09 at 1:51
