[xsl] <xsl:template match="and"> does not work

I have to process an XML document that contains elements of the form

    <and id="1">
        <expression first="aa" second="bb"/>

Unfortunately, Xalan 1.4 complains if I use an XSLT stylesheet with lines like
<xsl:apply-templates select="and"/>
<xsl:template match="and">
because "and" has a special meaning as an XPath function.

Does anybody has an idea how to deal with such a case?

Thanks in advance,
