</text>"

If you want to use xml parser, then I would suggest using xml_unserialize from Keith Devens.

If you want to use preg_match you can use:
$title1 = '';
$title2 = '';
if(preg_match_all('/(title\d+)="(.*?)"/', $text, $results)) {
  foreach($results[0] as $key => $value) {
      if($results[1][$key] == 'title1') $title1 = $results[2][$key];
      if($results[1][$key] == 'title2') $title2 = $results[2][$key];
  }
}

Very bad solution. If you want try this

$title2 = '';
$arr=explode("title1=\"",$str);
$arr=explode("\"",$arr[1]);
$title1=$arr[0];

$arr=explode("title2=\"",$str);
$arr=explode("\"",$arr[1]);
$title2=$arr[0];
echo "<br>title1=".$title1;
echo "<br>title2=".$title2;

Then you can better use:

$title1 = preg_match('title1="(.*?)"', $str, $m) ? $m[1] : '';
$title2 = preg_match('title2="(.*?)"', $str, $m) ? $m[1] : '';
