With all due respect, this was not my question which was: Why doesn't
the solution provided in Companion work?
I went to texhax and from FAQ downloaded amslatex > math > testmath.tex
and testmath.pdf. Now, testmath.pdf shows a named theorem on page 6 in
which the name is boldfaced and testmath.tex indeed has the syntax in
Companion but when I typeset testmath.tex, the name is not boldfaced.
I assume therefore that the problem is either, somehow, with my
installation—TeXShop 1.43 on 10-3-9 or, more likely another mistake of
mine. So, the first thing I would like to know is if anyone gets the
above named theorems as per the book but with the name unboldfaced.
