I'd been thinking along the same lines. Having been bitten 
by the wiki bug recently both at work, and as a means to 
organise my research notes.

I wanted to be able to statically publish this information, 
and work on it with XML tools (indexing, styling, etc). So I've 
a project simmering on the back-burner at the moment to 
take one of the open source wikis -- I'm using jspWiki at 
present -- and rework it so that it stores content as XML, but 
allows authoring using the standard Wiki syntax. That way 
everybody wins.
