compskills:|(C C++) html|
compskills:|java %jquery|

Different query parts on the same field can be grouped using pipe characters (||). This is useful to prevent repetition of a field name, but other than that the two queries 'compskills:java compskills:jquery' and 'compskills:|java jquery|' are equivalent. Within the pipe characters a limited subset of the query language can be used: OR groups, conditions, terms, phrases, proximity expressions are allowed, however no field names can be used. All conditions within the field group overrule the group condition, except for the default condition which does not overrule the group condition. Query part weights are allowed within the field group but it is not possible to assign a weight to the field group itself.
