        Yeah ,you missed something all right. All the Wiki's use HTML
as the presentation *and* storage format. We are just trying to 
work out a mechanism to use an XML format (Jonathan prefers DocBook).
Also we are thinking of a multi repository WIKI. ie the normal Wiki
supports only one site (right ?).

        Wiki is good for user-edited webpages, but not good enough for 
user manuals/books. That is what our Wiki is supposed to do.

        Also you should understand that Web programmers who write Wiki
clones are not the same people who write compilers. Sure we could 
use some work from anyone, but Wiki will indeed help Pnet in the 
documentation phase .

 The difference between insanity and genius is only measured by success
