[Project_owners] Improved Drupal Editing - Cleaner Wiki, Blog, and Forum postings

While we were primarily focused on improving our wiki [1], we also got a big
improvement to editing blogs and forum posts as well.  We've added FCKeditor
[2] to our drupal install and updated all our wikis to use HTML formatting
by default while still allowing quick linking between articles through the
use of [[Square Brackets]].

A few notable changes/improvements:

* CamelCase words are no longer linked.  You must link via
  [[Square Brackets]] to pages
* Table of Contents are added via an HTML comment: <!--tableofcontents-->
* Geshi code highlighting is only supported by editing the source and adding
  a <blockquote> tag

We hope this drastically improves the usability of our wikis and the rest of
the Drupal-based tools.  Let us know if you run into any bugs.
