Re:  text() and not()
I'm not sure if this answers your question because I can't tell if all the
elements you want to treat like this have the same construction, and I'm not
sure if you literally want "xref" in the output, but here is a simple set of
templates that uses recursion to output what you say you want.

============ Stylesheet ============
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"

<xsl:template match="/">
 <xsl:apply-templates select='title'/>

<xsl:template match='title'>
<xsl:call-template name='matchtext'/>

<xsl:template name='matchtext'>
<xsl:copy-of select='text()'/>
<xsl:for-each select='*'>
 <xsl:if test='name()="xref"'>xref</xsl:if>
 <xsl:call-template name='matchtext'/>

<xsl:template match='*'/>

============= Result ==============
  Renew LP Piston Seal (Fig 5.5.1


(I wrapped the output in a <result> element - of course, it could be
anything.  You can get rid of the extra whitespace by using
normalize-space(text()) if you care about that).

If you want to output something else instead of "xref" it should be clear
where to make corresponding changes.
