comment Negative integral of a positive function
This definitely looks like a bug that should be reported. In version 8.0.4 the integral stays unevaluated, which is better than giving a wrong result...

comment What are the Mathematica functions to plot in a 3D version of elliptical coordiante system?
A Mathematica answer can not be given until the mathematical purpose of the question is clarified. It seems to be mainly a mathematics issue to which the answer would be quite broad. Is it supposed to be an orthogonal coordinate system? What, if any, symmetries is it supposed to have?

comment Plotting in Elliptical coordinate system
The meaning of the term "elliptical coordinate system" is that it provides a parametrization of points in a Cartesian frame, where every point is the intersection of an ellipse and a hyperbola. So to plot in this coordinate system is synonymous to forming Cartesian plot in the end, and therefore it is not clear at all what you mean by not having elliptical coordinates linked to the Cartesian ones. The name "elliptical coordinates" itself comes from the elliptical shape of the coordinate lines when drawn in Cartesian coordinates!

@Joe I'm guessing you're using Mathematica version 8, or at least not the newest version. In version 8, I can confirm that Appearance -> "Labeled" doesn't work. Since you accepted the solution, does that mean you're not looking for a workaround anymore?
