I have laid out my quick ideas on the site itself, I think that the Beta* layout
will be fine, I think it will get around most problems. Please post work here:

This is slick. Based on a wiki core, we could then have xml, html, docbook, blah
blah formats. We will see how this goes, and build as needed.

About the other wikis you mentioned, I haven't looked into them. My main
criteria was having a php core, and phpwiki seemed reasonable. I could run a
different one though. I just had it set up a while ago.

    PhpWiki (the one you installed)

    MediaWiki (used by wikipedia.org)

    MoinMoin (used by docbook.org)

Anyone comment on benefits/drawbacks of these different engines?
