Re: Editing MediaWiki pages

Dear Sharon,

Thanks for the message. I am sorry for the delay in replying; I am traveling.

The Wiki I am writing in is a  multiuser one, where users edit pages with tools 
of their choice.  Therefore, maintaining local versions of the pages in Org 
mode, and exporting from them, is not feasible. 

Regards,
Raghu.
