Thanks for the swift answer.

I considered this. Since I am writing a script to generate the query from
another query anyway, it would be quite easy to do. I just thought that 
this
would be quite inefficient. As far as I'm aware (correct me if I'm wrong),
this query would perform one separate search for every disjunction and 
then
merge the results? If this is the case, that is probably not the best way 
to
go in terms of performance.

Your other suggestion is a possibility, but I would probably have to 
translate
the documents to HTML, as they are in XML currently?

Thanks, Jonas.
