Tom, you're right, essentially Safari/Webkit.
Creating iTunes LP
iTunes LP is simply a directory with an ".itlp" extension and a set of
defined contents, described below. The iTunes application will
recognize such directories and import them into its library. Once
there, they are associated with their corresponding album, and iTunes
presents a special UI in order to allow the user to initiate playback.
At its core, iTunes LP is an HTML file that is presented using an
embedded version of the Safari Web Browser within iTunes. The Web
engine used in iTunes 9.0 is equivalent to the Safari 4.0 release, and
you can expect most content that functions correctly when loaded into
Safari to do the same in iTunes, with a few restrictions.
The HTML content must be valid HTML 4.01, XHTML 1.0 or HTML 5. It can
reference other assets such as images, audio, movies, CSS and
included in the iTunes LP package - referencing media external to the
iTunes LP will fail. Links to external sites are allowed, but will not
open within iTunes. Instead, they will launch inside the Web browser
on the user's system. Also plugins such as Flash and Java are not
supported - for media use the HTML 5 audio or video elements.
