I'd like to select a set of nodes based on an ItemState bitmask  this number is an integer and I need to test if this integer has certain bits set.

My XPath would look something like /root/itemRecord[ItemStateMask AND 0x40000000 == 0x40000000]

If applied against this document, both records should be returned.
<root>
  <itemRecord>
    <ItemStateMask>1073741824</ItemStateMask>
  </itemRecord>
  <itemRecord>
    <ItemStateMask>1073741826</ItemStateMask>
  </itemRecord>
</root>

What is the correct syntax to do a select like this?
