# Shaded theorems – Theorem environments that are shaded

Extends the `\newtheorem` command. If you say
`\newshadetheorem{theorem}{Theorem}` in the preamble then
your regular `\begin{theorem} .. \end{theorem}` will
produce a theorem statement in a shaded box. It supports all the
options of `\newtheorem`, including forms
`\newshadetheorem{..}[..]{..}` and
`\newshadetheorem{..}{..}[..]`.

Environments declared using the package require their body to
remain on one page; the mdframed
package can frame and shade theorems, and *its*
environments break at the end of a page; users are generally
recommended, therefore, to use mdframed.

In the same spirit, the author told us in January 2020: “These materials are obsolete. There are a number of more recent, more powerful packages that have capabilities that greatly extend the simple ones here. A new project should use one of those. These files only continue to be available to help people who are working with an old project.”
