There is a DTD for the iTunes XML file on the Apple web site (as referred to in the DOCTYPE) but it doesn't clarify much. The file looks like a dump of a Map - its just keys and values in generic elements. I have been working with it to clean up my library after converting it all to Apple Lossless encoding (it duplicated everything). I am running it through an initial grouping pass to convert it to a sensible structure before further processing it. I am using XSLT 2.0 which makes things a little easier.

I've searched the web but haven't found anything exceptionally appealing. Has anyone on this list developed an XSL that they're happy with for formatting iTunes XML as HTML for a browser? Preferably giving the user the ability to sort and/or filter?

Not that we've seen. But how hard can it be? (I'd implement the sort/filter in Javascript/DOM, a layer up, if it were me.)
