For this task I would start at the other end -- instead of getting the file name for each title, get the title for each file name.

Given a list of file names:


You can iterate over this list selecting each <file> element in turn; retrieve the title from the file using document(.)/pathtotitle.

There's the table for your reverse lookup from title to file name.

I am able to get a list of the titles without
a problem.  I want to build a table from the
titles and file name so I can create another
conversion on another group of documents have
have the titles embedded and link back to the
individual files which are well-formed.

I want to get a listing such as:

<filename>foo1.xml</filename> <title>This is a title</title>

I want to use this to put links into another document:

<p>... see <xref href="foo1.xml">This is a title</xref><p>

I am grabbing the entity filename and title as a way of
including links in another document (which I can change).

I actually did this once before with a file that had IDs and it was a
really simple process. I created an Omnimark script from the XSLT since
XSLT isn't the best 'search and replace' program. I was hoping to do the
same thing this time but without ID's it is proving difficult.
