Much information is nowadays stored electronically in document bases. Users retrieve information from these document bases by browsing and querying. While a large number of tools are available nowadays, not much work has been done on tools that support queries involving all the characteristics of documents as well as the use of domain knowledge during the search for information. In this paper we propose a query language that allows for querying documents using content information, information about the logical structure of the documents as well as information about properties of the documents. Domain knowledge is taken into account during the search as well. We also present an architecture for a system supporting such a language and we describe a prototype implementation together with test results.
