dom4j uses Jaxen ( under the covers for XPath stuff,
so if you want to boil things down to original sources, I suggest...

1) Try a Document.selectNodes(...) through the dom4j API.

	If that fails...

2) Try XPath.selectNodes( doc ) through the Jaxen API.

At one point, we didn't have the union operator working right, but
I think it's been fixed for a while, and dom4j 1.2 should have
integrated the latest jaxen sources, I think.
