Trying to compile a stylesheet with 'template match="and"' or with 'template
match="or"' causes an error. The compiler reports a syntax error. Probably it
interprets the expression "and" as an OperatorName.
However, the XPath spec in section 3.7 (http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath#exprlex)
states clearly that a token must not be recognized as an OperatorName unless
there is a preceding token (other than @, ::, (, [, , or an Operator).
In the expression "and" there is only one token (namely "and"). There is no
preceding token, so the token "and" must NOT be recognized as an OperatorName!
Instead it should be recognized as a NameTest, matching an XML element named "and".
The same applies to "or".
