title to the description. Have a look into core-des.tex.

Naturally, the example of lemma definition is commented out ;)

\defineenumeration[lemma][title=yes, titlestyle=\bs, list=lemma]
into your document and try to use
\startlemma{title of the lemma}
blah blah

Check parameters of descriptions in the manual, you can find some options
related to the title mechanism.


P.S.: I've achieved the same functionality by means of ugly hacks that
depend on ConTeXt version strongly.  That's why I don't send you my
