I have started editing at Thom’s theorem. So far it has just the definition of the bordism ring, the statement of the theorem and some literature.

I have added a bunch of infrastructure (section Ingredients) and then spelled out in detail the proof (here) that the Pontrjagin-Thom construction first of all yields a well-defined function of sets

$\left\{ {n\text{-}manifolds\;with\;stable} \atop {normal\;\mathcal{B}\text{-}structure} \right\} \longrightarrow \pi_n(M\mathcal{B}) \,.$

I have now spelled out the proof (here) that the PT construction yields a ring homomorphism $\Omega^\mathcal{B}_\bullet \to \pi_{\bullet}(M \mathcal{B})$, and the idea of the proof (here) that this is an isomorphism.
