Thank you for the above. I'll have to spend some time and study the material on \theoremstyle which I've not used before.

I have a whole bunch of additional \newtheorem lines which I did not include,  very much like what you have listed above, but no \theoremstyle lines.

That reads like a much better solution compared to what I've been doing.  :-)
