Oh, HyperDoc does not appear when started from within Axiom? I'd call that a
bug. (I'm not using TeXmacs, anybody out there who knows?)
However, it is not so inconvenient as you might think. When Axiom is doing a
big calculation, HyperDoc becomes unresponsive. Thus I often start a second
Axiom, to do some browsing while I let Axiom compute. Maybe you want to write
a tiny shell script like
## call this file axiom and put it into your private ~/bin directory ##########
#! /bin/bash
$AXIOM/bin/axiom
$AXIOM/bin/axiom $@
###############################################################################
(i.e., first start axiom without any parameters, which you will use for
HyperDoc browsing, then start the "real" axiom process, which TeXmacs will
use.)

They don't :-(. It's too sad, but we have not found a programmer who is either
* willing to port HyperDoc to MS Windows (HyperDoc relies on X)
or
* willing to write a HyperDoc replacement as outlined in
http://wiki.axiom-developer.org/SummerOfCode2007 and many many long email
discussions.
If you have somebody handy, please tell me immediately. We can even pay a
(very) symbolic amount of money. If he decides today (deadline is April 11),
he probably can do it as a Summer of Code project and earn 4500$. In this case
he should apply here:
http://lispnyc.org/soc.clp
and mention Martin Rubey as (inofficial) co-mentor.
