Division symbol in Graphical Plots

I am using Mathematica 2.2 on a university network pc

When I do ListPlots/Plots of my data, I label my axes with fractioned

e.g. In[10]:= FrameLabel->{"x"/"L","Ci"/"Cs"}, RotateLabel->False.

But on the graphical output of these plots, I see dashes instead of a 
solid horizontal line to represent the division symbol, within the 
e.g   I see   Ci        ; I want  Ci   .
              --                 ____
              Cs                  Cs

I noticed that Mathematica usually prints out expressions in an 
approximation to standard mathematical notation,

e.g. In[1]:= (a + b)/(x + y)
     Out[1]:=  a + b
               x + y

How can I get this solid bar as the division symbol within the 
framelabel or axeslabel?

You will note that the solid bar I use in this email is "Shift" + 
"- " keys, which produces a "bottom horizontal line" (I do not want 
to use this either, cause its off center).

Thank you for your time and consideration
