I tried Dokuwiki http://www.splitbrain.org/dokuwiki/wiki:dokuwiki at the
recommendation of a blog about PHP that I frequent
http://www.sitepoint.com/blog-view.php?blogid=9 after using PHPWiki for
a while (http://wiki.raschnet.com). I much prefer Dokuwki and hope to
transition mine soon with the help of some regex's.
I particularly like the syntax highlighting, and sub-page editing (edit
just part of the page rather than always editing the whole thing).
