In order to get feeds with only the tags [php], [css] and [javascript], I use this:

http://stackoverflow.com/feeds/tag?tagnames=php+or+css+or+javascript&sort=newest

But how do I get the same feed to exclude tags I'm not interested in (for instance, [jquery])?

I tried to use the minus syntax suggested here, but it does not seem to work:

http://stackoverflow.com/feeds/tag?tagnames=php+or+css+or+javascript+-jquery&sort=newest

The [jquery] questions continue to show up.

If it's possible to use it for feeds, do you know what am I doing wrong?

Mixing of or and not gets ambiguous because there is no support for explicit grouping, eg

(foo or bar or baz) and not shazam

not the same as

foo or bar or baz and not shazam
