I think that you need Mathematica Version 3.x instead of Version 2.2.

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?
