There is no way to tell with without seeing how the doclink elements
that are nested deeper are related to the other information you want to
collect.  That is to say, what are the doclinks nested in?  The solution
might amount to a grouping problem, or something else, but we need more

If you have some influence over the design of the source xml, it would
be useful to change it so that all doclinks are at the same nesting
level.  On the other hand, if it is a case of one document being nested
within another, along with its associated information, only minor
changes would be needed to the code I posted (like changing the select
statement for the variable to '//doclink').  But we have to see more
examples and explanation.
