It was the missing image that was causing the reflow.  (I am using

If you really like plone, why not move all wiki pages into plone?

I like the improvements you've made on the wiki a lot.  I would add that
we should separate the "discussion" page from the wiki page itself.
(Just make a [Page Discussion] wiki page where emails and comments go)
ZWiki collects page clutter quickly since comments get added to the same
page, then everyone is afraid to delete them, and there is no automated
method to archive them.

If we all prefer the ZWiki interface though, then we need to add user
login.  This product looks good:
