    I hate to reinvent the wheel - are there any programs or web pages available for download that can look at various data in "iTunes Music Library.xml"?

    Most text reading apps (such as Apple's own TextEdit) can read it. :)

    Sure they can read it, but this is XML, designed to be inputed to a Web page to be formatted nicely.

    Some program that reads the XML and creates a formatted web page.

    I'll look into it, thanks.

    The other thing, I exported a playlist and got a file with all of the data - but undelimited. That is a pain since many fields have spaces in them. I'd love to export it with fields delimited so that I could read it into my spreadsheet. Then I could pick and choose which fields I am interested in.

    I downloaded the .dmg file and will install it when I get to a Mac. If it produces an executable, it will be usable on that computer. If it produces WSDL or HTML, then I will also be able to use it at work. (I'm using a Windows machine now).
