The original glossary distinguished e-with-hook from plain e, and o-with-hook from plain o. OCR did not give good results with this text. One example Crowne cites in his article is that which concludes Beowulf's fight with the monsters during his swimming match with Breca: Those sinful creatures had no fill of rejoicing that they consumed me, assembled at feast at the sea bottom; rather, in the morning, wounded by blades they lay up on the shore, put to sleep by swords, so that never after did they hinder sailors in their course on the sea. THUS seethed unceasing the son of Healfdene with the woe of these days; not wisest men assuaged his sorrow; too sore the anguish, loathly and long, that lay on his folk, most baneful of burdens and bales of the night. Such heaping of horrors the hater of men, lonely roamer, wrought unceasing, harassings heavy.

Old English prose first appears in the 9th century, and continues to be recorded through the 12th century as the last generation of scribes, trained as boys in the standardised West Saxon before the Conquest, died as old men. This is a particular feature of Anglo-Saxon verse style, and is a consequence both of its structure and of the rapidity with which images are deployed, to be unable to effectively support the expanded simile. A note on Robinson's 'Rewards of Piety. Thanks to Steven Krise for pointing out this glitch.
