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.

William Pore OCist, Nouale (Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Carmen versibus resonantibus scriptum ad Henricum abbatem de Swineshead (Content authored by Nasmith)
Incipit, “Noscere debetis pictoribus atque poetis.” (Content authored by Nasmith)
In nota marginali liber sic describitur; “Nota quod causa materialis hujus libri in parte est donum Henrici abbatis de Swynesheued: in quadam est gramatica et in quadam est moralis: in qua tanguntur quedam proverbia communia: in majori parte casus viales quos auctor hujus operis cum discipulis suis percepit in redeundo de Swynesheued ad scolas post natalia festa ibidem celebrata; et in parte tangit proprietates avium et brutorum ad Latine eloquentie opulentiam et ad puerorum instructionem. Causa autem efficiens est intellectus autoris motus est ad predicta describenda metrice: formalis autem est modus agendi qui metricus est; finalis est dicti abbatis commendatio cum ceteris que tanguntur in causa materiali. Titulus hic incipit novale dictum a quodam novo metro soli dicto abbati appropriate.” (Content authored by Nasmith)
Ex primis versibus acrosticis apparet nomen autoris fuisse Willelmum Pore.(Content authored by Nasmith)

Noscere debetis pictoribus atque poetis
Quelibet audere datur equum posse tenere
Cur mea figmenta non praues hoc docume(n)ta
Que fere quingenta numero sunt per metra lenta
Abbas care uale tuus est liber iste nouale
Nam metrum tale tibi continet hic speciale
Tangit penale. tangit quandoque iocale
Nunc est morale, proprium nunc nunc generale
Nunc cronographale. nunc sistit gramaticale
Nunc topographale. per causam sic uariale
The acrostic begins: It reads Willelmus Pore
Vult mens factorum quedam metrare tuorum
Inclita nostrorum casus simul et puerorum
On f. iiiv is a more elaborate acrostic on the name Henricus Abbas de Swineshevid. It is in five columns, each line usually of five words, each column forming the same acrostic:
The text then resumes in two columns
