No, so I just wrote one and called it xls. It uses ls and awk, so
if you're running Windows you'll need the Cygwin Utilities from
www.cygwin.com (Umm...I use GNU awk, I don't know if Cygwin has
gawk, maybe someone can test that for me).

I've included a DTD for checking purposes but that should be
taken out if it is shown to work :-) It seems to do the job on
my machine but I don't have many files with funny characters, so
it needs much more testing. 

The code is crummy, but I don't know enough Perl or Python to do
it decently, and I haven't exactly spent a lot of time polishing.
