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.

Provenance:The book is of English work, and, as I said, more like St Albans to my mind than Canterbury. But the addition of St Augustine's feast the only one, I think, to be found, does suggest that Canterbury was its home.
