Re: [isabelle] Creating Theorems in ML

note that antiquotations are resolved *statically* when processing an
Isabelle/ML block, hence I guess the issue is that you make a reference
to a symbol which is not yet present when the Isabelle/ML is parsed.

I do not know what your application context is, but if you are plumbing
Isabelle/ML pieces in a theory file (which is usually a good starting
point for experimentation), it is sufficient to have the antiquotation
in question in a separate Isabelle/ML block.
