Oh ya... in fact there are quite a number of places where Axiom
documentation and even Axiom itself using "old fashioned" TeX
coding styles. I agree that these should (eventually) be weeded
out and replaced. Right now there is an axiom developer (Andreas?)
who is doing some work to replace the TeX generated by Axiom with
better LaTeX. His immediate motivation is to better support tools
like TeXmacs.

Will tex4ht convert any of these legacy codes?

All the files required to build Axiom from source should be part of
this source tree on the Axiom wiki. If you notice anything else
missing, please let me know.

Hmmm... wouldn't that imply {\csname HCode\endcsname{}} is the
"wrong way"? But anyway, I understand that there are always
compromises we have to make to standards.
