Yes,

mediawiki was actually the reason because you could create nice documentations from it, I forgot the name but RH is using that.
Without ranting how much I hate media wiki, it's hard to configure in such a way to make good looking
documentation. And you need people that are willing to invest considerable amouth of time
to add documentation that will really look good. I have never done that myself and at the moment no interest 
to make that work.
However, if there is a person with mediawiki experience that has this knowledge, I am more then willing to give
him access to our server and let him/her configure this.

A simple request from a complete beginner - can you include an explanation of what the 'draft' icon does - and 'it switches to and from daft mode' is not what I mean because I don't understand what draft mode means.

Cheers

Ian
