The DOS shell. You need to quote your parameters, as in

   xmllint Foo.xml --xpath "/XXX/(one|two)/YYY"

My apologies. I should have sent out the complete example so it shows
that I am doing exactly that.
xmllint BookstoreQ.xml --xpath "/Bookstore/ ( Book | Magazine )/Title"
XPath error : Invalid expression
/Bookstore/ ( Book | Magazine )/Title
xmlXPathEval: evaluation failed
XPath evaluation failure


  Do either as Bjoern suggested or

xmllint BookstoreQ.xml --xpath "/Bookstore/Book/Title | /Bookstore/Magazine/Title"

not ideal but works
