As mentioned by another responder, you should use the AMSLaTeX style
for enunciations such as Theorem, Lemma etc. They are structured as you
describe. You can customize any style sheets and palettes to mix and
match various elements like these, if you are exporting to a different
LaTeX class not supported by Publicon "out of the box". See the Custom
Modules documentation in the help browser, along with Customizing LaTeX
Output in the Advanced Features documentation.

As for \Box, we defer to AMSTeX and generate \square instead, which
should appear identical. The \[EmptySquare] character in Publicon will
produce this output, whereas \[Square] is currently regarded as a
Wolfram-specific character. I see no reason to maintain this
distinction, so we've changed the underlying code for \[Square] to
beget \square, as it seems obvious it should. This correction will
appear in 1.1, which is in development as our next release. There are
also character-specific conversion methods for getting \Box if you
really want it. Search on Custom Character Conversions in the help
browser Go To field in the User Guide to find a discussion of one
localized method.
