Dear Ralph

It's a long time I had installed AxiomWiki on my computer. In the mean time I 
don't use it anymore, because I would have had to find some way to automatise 
the set-up, because updates on the software used to overwrite the changed 

Anyway: I doubt that you can use AxiomWiki locally without having Zope 
installed (and Plone is built on top of Zope, but I didn't understand what 
you referred to). From where you got to, you need to restart Zope. Create a 
new Zope document and choose "AxiomWiki" as its format. Within that document 
you can do the \begin{axiom} ...\end{axiom}.

I haven't followed some of the threads, so I might have missed something. If 
you want the existing MathAction locally, the admin of the Axiom wiki will 
have to export a Zope object for you (as far as I remember, because Zope uses 
a local object store; I don't think that users can initiate the export).

With best regards
