No... compare this plone wiki:

http://www.ubuntulinux.org/wiki/FrontPage

And yours:

http://test.axiom-developer.org/mathaction

"inside plone" means the plone titlebar, search field, login button, and
all that.  Here is what it should look like, with a wiki page in the
middle obviously:

I don't know what you've done but it does not appear to be using plone.
"view source" on the ubuntu page and see the 10 or so .css files linked

No, the pages look very different due to the interface added by plone.
e.g. here is latexwiki in plone:

It's more than a matter of finding the css, the plone page template is
not being used at all, and zwiki's wikipage.pt is being used instead
(even when you hit the plone link to change skins).

I noticed that.  Did you install dviping?  I was bouncing back and forth
between dvipng, gs, and using alpha-channel or not, because it affected
my new image alignment code.

This is the reason 0.38 isn't out yet.  I've spent SO much time tweaking
the image rendering...this is getting tiresome.  I've got to stop doing
that because it's making me not want to look at latexwiki.
