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.

Additions:Note that in Historical MSS. Reports I 65, there is a notice of a paper roll given by Th. Whincop in 1690, and written by Andrew Middleton, Bencher of the Middle Temple, in 1527, going from the Creation to 1066 A.D.: now among the College Muniments. This is wrongly described in Stanley's Catalogue as Misc. 23.
