Thinking about this, I'm not so sure this ought to be included as a "lemma" as such. A lemma, from what I understand, is a self-contained result which is used only in the context of the course of a particular proof.

In this particular case, this is a result which could have wider usage than just in the course of the fundamental theorem of abelian groups. As such, I would then just provide a link to the result, and not include the full-blown result directly on the page (foldable editor or no). The approach I just suggested would be more in keeping with the general style of proofwiki. I would have gone through and done it myself but haven't got round to it.

This page was originally written by someone who is no longer around, but had a different philosophical take on the structuring of proofs on this site. --prime mover 03:59, 20 October 2011 (CDT)

Whoops! You're already there. Soz. --prime mover 04:01, 20 October 2011 (CDT)

Does anyone note the $a$ and $b^{-1}$ and $e$ and $e^{-1}$ in the eqn not aligning as well? Very strange. --Lord_Farin 18:02, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

It appears to be related to the fact that a finitely-pixelated screen can't display vector graphics perfectly. Zooming solves the problem. --Lord_Farin 19:51, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
I tried placing them directly together (i.e. removing the space between them) but that doesn't help. Strangely, in preview mode it seems okay. I suspect there's something up with the browser s/w, as I haven't heard from Joe about upgrades to either MediaWiki or MathJax. And there's other funny stuff going on as well. --prime mover 19:51, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
