Joshua, I know that you do not quite like the Wiki, but I am about to
give up on the Monkeyguide receiving anything remotely close to the
attention it deserves if it stays on SVN.

Those with access to SVN are the developers, and they are typically too
busy developing to maintain and use the docs.

Am wondering if you could assist us with the proper XSLT glue to
transform our current XHTML documentation into something that MediaWiki
would consume.

All that matters I believe is to turn:




External links:

	<a href="http://...">abc</a>

	[http:// abc]

Internal links:

	<a href="blah">Dum</a>

	[[blah Dum]]

<p>...</p> just adds a newline between them.

The rest we can probably copy-edit manually once we have the pages up.
