Unlike other users, I'm not aiming to use Isabelle for performing proofs as
such.  Rather I'm looking to gain a deep understanding of how Isabelle
works.  But thanks for the Isar example for Socrates, which will help me
understand Isar.

Thanks.  I've got Isabelle 2005 with HOL up and running now (curiously, this
required a handful of changes to the Isabelle ML source code to get it
through what purports to be Poly/ML 4.1.4).  But how do I enter HOL term and
type quotations into the session?  And what are the HOL term and type
constructor functions?
