The James Catalogue was digitized then marked up following the TEI P5 Guidelines. The customized model was provided by Giuliano Di Bacco, stored in an ODD file (parkerweb.xml): the latter was written by GDB using ROMA vers. 2.x, with manual adaptations. The ODD file is used as a source to compile the actual schema used to validate the xml: it is advisable to compile it in RelaxNG sintax (parkerweb.rnc) through ROMA.

Enlarged Rule of Chrodegang in Latin and Old English(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Regula Chrodegangi
Codicology:Vellum, 290 x 175 mm(Content authored by Corpus Christi College), (11.4 x 7 in.), ff. 85 + 2, 27 lines to a page. Cent. xi early, in two very good round upright hands. The earlier leaves are very tender from damp.
Collation: a2 18 (2 replaced by blank) 28-118 (wants 6-8).
Additions:On the flyleaf (iiv)(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) a Parkerian note attributing the work to Theodore.
Research:Miss Bateson (Eng. Hist. Rev. 1894, p. 699) has pointed out that this work is the Rule of Chrodegang of Metz as enlarged after the Council of Aix-la-Chapelle in 817. Lord Selborne (Ancient Facts and Fictions concerning Tithes, edn 2, pp. 264-70) had also rightly identified the work, which previous writers had mistaken for the Benedictine Rule.
A copy said to be by Whelock is in Harl. MS. 440. It contains the capitula complete (doubtless excerpted from the text, as they are in Wanley, p. 130). Another (Latin only) is in Vitellius D. VII, much burnt. This last was a volume of Collectanea of Laurence Nowell, and this text is described by him as copied from a book belonging to Exeter Cathedral. On this account the present MS. is identified (rightly, as it seems) with one of Leofric's gifts to Exeter: probably no. 21 in his list (Regula Canonicorum) but possibly no. 23 (Canon on Leden). There was also a copy at Christ Church, Canterbury, “Regula Canonicorum Anglice” (Ancient Libraries, p. 51, no. 317).
The text is to be edited by Professor Napier for the Early English Text Society.
