OK I will bite 

what would an array representing an "AND/OR" 
style query look like such that if used as a predicate 


     else if tElement contains pNeedle then

it would return true/false

How would you have to construct "tElement"


Mark: In terms of generalizing that function - then the key line which checks
whether an element matches is:

     else if tElement contains pNeedle then

    One could imagine that this could be an arbitrary predicate - pNeedle 
    doesn't have to be a string, so could be an array representing a AND / 
    OR style query; or could be a regex (in which case you'd use matchText).
