This happens very often. Someone new user always enters an axiom commmad
in a comment with no preceeding text. Then a bug in MathAction causes the
command to not be recognized as a command.

I modified the regular expressions that scripts ReplaceInlineAxiom.py and
ReplaceInlineReduce.py use to search for commands embedded in the text.
The previous version used a negative look-behind for the ! escape character
in combination the start of string ^ character. This test failed if there
was no character preceeding the first \\begin{axiom} or \\begin{reduce}.
I simply removed the start of line requirement. As a result \\begin it
is also now possible to indent equations properly in structured text.

* See SandBox for an example of the use of such indentation.

* Comments that start with commands should now also work.

* Let me know if this causes any unexpected behaviour.

* I am monitoring SandBox and a few other pages to see
  what sort of problems new users have when then experiment
  with entering commands. I think/hope that the web site is
  getting a little easier to understand for the novice.
