Semi-structured document retrieval is becoming more popular with the increasing quantity of data available in XML format. In this paper, we describe a search engine model that exploits the structure of the document and uses language modelling and smoothing at the document and collection levels for calculating the relevance of each element from all the documents in the collection to a user query. Element priors, CAS query constraint filtering, and the +/- operators are also used in the ranking procedure. We also present the results of our participation in the INEX 2008 Ad Hoc Track.
