In powershell, how can I look inside a zip file for text in an xml that matches something from a list of strings in another text file.

I have a text file with a list of id's and I have to look through a bunch of zip files which have xml files in them for strings that match the id's on the list.  I would like to use powershell to traverse through the zip files with xml in them and look for the first few characters of the matching strings.
Let me know how i can do this.
thanks,
