When using Axiom from within TeXmacs, you clearly forgot to put
the formula inside a pair of dollars in your interface code.
The current output is in text mode.

By the way, you will have another big disadvange when using your
line-breaking code: it will become impossible to copy and paste
part of the output back into TeXmacs.

I am not convinced either that your way of representing fractions
is really more readable. I would rather opt for the / notation
for large fractions. In that case, the standard TeXmacs line-breaking
code will do the job for you.
