I already read 2 questions regarding search on meta:

But what I am looking for is something different (Or am I confused?!!). Here is what I need:

Lets say, I am interested in questions with two tags - C# & xml. I usually use "[C#]" in the search field and get all the questions with C# tag. Similarly, I get all the questions tagged xml when I key "[xml]".

Now, If I enter "[C#][xml]" - I get all the questions where both C# and xml are present. My question is - Is there a way to display all questions with C# and xml? Here is one possible example. I may want questions tagged,, and

If I key in all of them in square brace, I get only the questions having all the tags. But I need questions having any of these tags.

Do we have an operator like [C#]||[xml] ? Or is there another why to get what I need?

Thanks for your help.

As explained in this question, it is possible to use OR when you’re searching via the URL query: or xml

Note that you have to escape # as %23 because otherwise Stack Overflow gets confused: or xml

yields a search for the [c] tag.
