If you just want XML, it's in the .tc file. The .tc file is just a Zip 
archive, so you can extract the top-level XML with

unzip books.tc tellico.xml

Depending on what kind of HTML you want, you can use xsltproc to convert 
the Tellico XML to HTML without opening Tellico. This command extracts 
the XML, pipes it through xsltproc and the tellico2html.xsl shipped with 
Tellico to output HTML. (ALl on one line)

unzip -p books.tc tellico.xml|xsltproc $(kde4-config --locate 
tellico/tellico2html.xsl --path data) - > tellico.html

Does that help?
