How to get an HTML listing of an XBMC movies database

Use this xsl file, follow the instructions here, or on ubuntu run the command

xsltproc ./title_year_link_html.xsl ./database.xml >XMBC_videolisting.html

This is very basic. It doesn't even use the html output option. Surely this can be done better. Way better. It does generate a search query to though. An example:
Fight Club (1999)
Wayne's World (1992)
Sometimes the search takes you right to the movie info (as the first example), but if there's a collision, it takes you to a search results page.
