MARC records?

Does anyone know of an XML DTD for bibliographic MARC records?

Library of Congress notes an SGML DTD effort:

I'm curious if this is applicable in an XML context, too (I
haven't looked closely at the DTD itself, and I'm not
as SGML savvy as I am XML savvy, I'm actually *used* to the 
more minimal, less-complex XML DTD structure).

Any information folks have on (SG|X)ML intersections with MARC
would be appreciated.  I'm trying valiantly to understand these
buggers, and hope to integrate an XML representation of the 
records into a searching / indexing system.  Any way I can
take these (nigh-unreadable) records and massage them into a
nicer representation would be great.
