On a recent project, I had over 50 XML files and a few TeX files open
simultaneously; I could switch between them from the Window menu in
TeXworks, or from the Windows task bar.  What TeXworks lacks is the
concept of a "Main file", so that I can (for example) activate the
"Compile" button while in an XML file and TeXworks will "know" to
compile the main (TeX) file rather than the XML file.
