If i understand correctly, you are saying

type='text' and type='password'

and you want

type='text' or type='password'

so it should be something like

FormElement[@type='text' or @type='password']


FormElement[@type='text' | @type='password']

They mean diferent things but the resulkt is the same, i think.

Also, the expression you used is not exactly

type='text' and type='password'

i think these i calles "steps", so what you4re sayimg really with

FormElement[@type='text' | @type='password']


give me all FormElement filtered by type='text' (thus you get only
type='text') and from the resulting set give me all the FormElements
filtered by type='password'

That will give you nothing, ofcourse...
