This is kind of a 3-parter.

Is there a way to output my Outlook XP calendar out as a web page.  It
can be static, it doesn’t need to get updated.  Above all, it needs to
be attractive, most HTML exports from office documents are not.   It
would be extra great (but not critical) if it had week, month, and
year views (even if each was a separate export).   I am looking for
something other then Outlook Web Access.

Can you point me at some sample HTML pages (URLs) that have attractive
layouts for calendars.   Not a big JPEG, must be built using HTML. Any
sample calendars will do.

3- (optional)
Can I also get the same stuff (export method and sample HTML pages)
for contact lists.

are you looking to host these services yourself (preferably free I guess),
or find a company that provides it for a fee?
kind regards

I am not looking to host anywhere.  These are just for demos.

I have provided links to information regarding exports from Outlook. 
The first article deals with exporting calendars.  Second, I link to a
Microsoft article about a developer application they have that may
provide a jumping-off point for your implementation.  Next, I have
found an interesting add-on product that offers enhanced calendars and
the ability to export them to HTML.

To begin to address your optional question regarding contacts, I have
provided links to articles discussing the export of Outlook forms.

Finally, I list a series of sample HTML calendars (I did not find HTML
samples for contacts).

An impressive collection of information about exporting Outlook
calendars.  Note in particular the techniques using a Word template
and VBA to provide control over the export, allowing you to create a
more attractive calendar.

Optional information related to exporting contacts:  While this
article discusses exports to Access and Excel, it also provides
information regarding HTML and XML exports.  I have pulled those
particular links here into the answer, to make them easier to access.

Here are some example calendars in HTML.  In cases where there is
indication that a particular tool was used to "power" the calendar, I
have included it.

Please let me know if there is any misunderstanding between your
questions and my answer.  I would be happy to clarify.  It is my hope
that you find this information helpful and easy to understand.  Also,
note that while the information relates to "Outlook 2000/2002" it is
suggested that this information should apply to "Outlook XP", as well.

Do you need an application that will to the connversion on a regular
basis or you merely need a way to convert them as HTML pages? (say,
within Outlook XP)

just a way to convert them as HTML pages.  or even, just
attractive-looking html formated examples of how other people/programs
have converted them.
