[xquery-talk] and/or searches

I have the following code:

for $entries in collection($collctn)//TEI.2/text[contains(., $keyword1)]
 concat ("for $entries in collection('", $collctn, "')//TEI.2[. &= '*", $keyword1, "*']
   and collection('", $collctn, "')//TEI.2[. &= '*", $keyword2, "*']",
 " return <doc>{$entries//TEI.2/@n, $entries//TEI.2/@id, $entries//TEI.2/text/@type, $entries//text//head[1]}</doc>")

And I get the following error:
XMLDBException occurred: cannot convert value of type xs:boolean to a node set

I understand the error, but not where it applies. Is it obvious to
everyone else?  I'm still learning
xquery - any pointers to good documentation or samples would be

CG>   I can't seem to get mine working.
