The Corpus contains all surviving OE material, excluding some variant texts. The texts have been divided into meaningful units, usually editorial sentences. Non-Old English words and roman numerals are marked using the FOREIGN tag; no attempt is made to distinguish Greek and Latin. Words identified by the DOE editors as unclear in MS or emended in the edited sources are marked using the CORR tag. CORR and FOREIGN elements may be nested within each other, but do not overlap.

There are 3037 texts in the corpus. The texts are ordered by their Cameron numbers, alphanumeric codes that consist of one letter followed by a number or numbers, variously identifying the specific texts. The Short Title and Short Short Title as well as Cameron number is in the header. Full bibliographic material (taken from the Healey-Venezky List of Texts), encoding, and other miscellaneous information is also found in the header. Each citation starts with the citation number and text reference identifier
