I don't know of anything off-hand, but I'll poke around.

There isn't a way to generate the individual HTML file with the
unzip/xsltproc approach. But, you can tweak the HTML file output itself,
though, passing --stringparam to the xsltproc command. Check the
tellico2html.xsl file for some available parameters, such as
 $ unzip -p tellico.xml | xsltproc  --stringparam column-names
'title artist' /usr/share/tellico/tellico2html.xsl - > Disques2.html

The column-names parameter is a space separated list of field names to use
for columns. You can set the grouping and sorting parameters,as well.
