My sources give the form |he:tan|, sv.VII (so ME |hight| originates from
preterite form |heht| or |hiht| which is the result of reduplication)

My thnx for the link too! It's great!
May I add some more Internat sources about OE (Englisc)?

http://lists.mun.ca/archives/englisc.html
http://ebbs.english.vt.edu/hel/hel.html
http://jebbo.home.texas.net/learn-oe/contents.htm
http://www.georgetown.edu/cball/oe/old_english.html

I admire Englisc! I still hope to design an OE-based conlang; I've gathered
quite enough material for it, but have no time to organize it :-(
