In order to finish the above goal, you may assume A and then have to show 
"B --> C".  The canonical structure of the text follows that of the 
statements.  Later on, things may be rearranged to improve the flow of 
reasoning (e.g. drop unused assumptions, reorder assumptions).

Try this to produce initial document setup (cf. the Isabelle System 

  isatool mkdir Test && isatool make

Alternatively, you may just invoke the Isabelle command 'display_drafts' 
on the source files you wish to get pretty printed.  (Proof General also 
offers a menu item for that.)
