Script is a small, distinct pre-Caroline minuscule considered typical of Breisgau, and for the most part probably in the hand of Liutfrit, the scribe of several St Gall charters (e.g., the charter of 754): open a is the rule; the head of g is closed; i-longa is frequent initially; majuscule N occurs here and there at the beginning of words; the top of ꞇ forms a loop to the left; the ro ligature is noteworthy, as it ends in a dot above the o; ti ligature is used for hard ti; the script on part of p. 173 is in manifest imitation of Insular majuscule, even to the wedge-shaped ascenders. Probationes pennae in eighth century uncial and minuscule are seen on p. 114 and 178.
