An AppleScript to create a list of random iTunes tracks

A popular post on blogs these days is the something called "Friday Random Ten," where people post ten random songs from their iPods or iTunes. People can generate ten random songs via playlists, Party Shuffle, etc.

Getting the HTML out of iTunes is easy, thanks to this AppleScript. The script takes the current selection in iTunes and creates an XHTML ordered list of up to ten items, and places it in the clipboard.

The AppleScript uses different layouts if the music is Classical or Opera, emphasizing the composer rather than the artist.
