I've been working on bug#18975 [1] trying to make wiki editing easier.  Our
interpretation of that is:
1) using HTML for markup instead of "wiki syntax" (ie, not Mediawiki, the
Text_Wiki syntax we were using, or Doku wiki that MDC switched to)
2) Add a featureful WYSIWYG editor to make editing HTML content easier
3) Maintain an easy way for linking to other pages

Our progress on this can be found on our dev server; an example page is here:

A snapshot of data was made today and most projects' wikis were upgraded on
our dev server.  Please check it out and let us know what's broken or you
like/don't like.

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

That's all I can think of right now; let us know what you think!
