If the title within each file is in the same place every time (or even if not), you can retrieve it by adapting the method David showed:


will get you the title element children of the document element of the file containing $node.

I don't know how far that gets you, however. But it shouldn't be hard to build a lookup table to get from this title (assuming it's unique) to a file name or some such.

Note that this also assumes each file is a complete well-formed XML document, not merely a parsed entity (which can have more than one top-level element).

The data files don't belong to me so I have to point to information within
the full document without the advantage of ID's.  The only thing that
really makes the data unique is the filenames and the titles within each
file of the entities.
