I've written a wiki as JSP/Servlets. Originally the content was stored
in XML and transformed to either xHTML or WikiText using an XSLT
sheet/taglib; which worked nicely until it came to handling the wiki
whitespace/newline rules from the edit pages in XSLT; XSLT ws stumps me
... I winded up using JDK1.4 regexes instead (to see what they're like;
not bad) and leaving the content as wikitext (had to move on). But I'd
be interested in looking at the XML storage again (I might have a rough
dtd knocking about). Btw, if you've used a wiki where the users classify
things using CategoryCategory pages (like the c2 wiki), what would your
thoughts be on blowing out topic maps or RDF from the link structure?
