Hi Raghu, sorry for not replying sooner but I've had the builders in and
am only now getting sorted out.

I regularly write 'articles' for my 'DrugFacts' mediawiki, using
org-mode exported as mediawiki. Every article and menu on that site is
written in org-mode, except for the top drop-down menu, and the articles
are also stored in mediawiki format in my ~/.emacs.d/wiki' directory.
Because my main file for DrugFacts is 3.4mb, I highlight the section
that I want to export and then export it as mediawiki, so that in the
mediawiki buffer I'm only left with the correct section and nothing
else. But it does require rereading and then various things like
citations being sorted out, for which I use several yasnippets further
down this email.

I've also set up several yasnippets which I find very useful when I'm
writing org-mode2mediawiki test, and they are -

I hope that these have been helpful, and if I can help you further,
please, get in contact.

Thanks
