The "statement" element is used for "Theorem, Lemma, Proof, Postulate, Hypothesis, Proposition, Corollary, or other formal statement"s. It is allowed to contain paragraphs, which can contain statements, but it does not allow statement to nest explicitly. A user feels that putting the nested statement into a paragraph is working around the intent of the tag set; they really do have situations in which there are Proofs inside Lemas. (See attached example).

Submitter Proposed Solution

Allow "statement" elements inside "statement" elements.
