You can't do this like you are showing it in your example (it's the
almost the same topic we are discussing under the title "feature
request") as the entities are resolved by the XML parser and their name
is not available by the XSLT transformation.

One way to work around this is to add the filename in your XML tree for
example like this :

 <graphic figname="fig01" figfile="&fig01;"/>
