GELLMU "article".  CTAN:/suport/gellmu

It provides LaTeX-like markup for writing article-level documents.

SGML is an intermediate stage, so you may write an article that
way if you prefer (but then you lose \newcommand with arguments).

Theorems, lemmas, etc are discussed in section 6.2 of the user
manual: http://www.albany.edu/~hammond/gellmu/glman/glman.html
or in an XHTML+MathML capable browser
        http://www.albany.edu/~hammond/gellmu/glman/glman-ht.xml

The example document at
    http://www.albany.edu/~hammond/gellmu/examples/confrac.xmh
makes use of such things.  (.xmh is a suffix used locally for
serving XHTML as "text/xml" while "application/xhtml+xml" lacks
universal recognition.)

Source files and PDF versions are available parallel using the
suffixes ".glm" and ".pdf", respectively.
