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.

Research:I do not find any notice of this MS. in Riley's edition. I suspect the sixteenth century portions were supplied by Parker from the College of Arms MS. Arundel VII, which he certainly used for his edition printed in 1574.
Sir F. Madden in the Preface to Matthew Paris, Historia Anglorum I lxvi, says definitely that this MS. was used by Parker for his edition and that the fact escaped Mr Riley's notice. He also records that this MS. is in the same hand as the Colbert copy (formerly Sir W. Cecil's) of Matthew Paris, now Bibl. Nationale Lat. 6048B. Parker had noted this fact in the Paris MS.
