    I would recommend using the MediaWiki software
    ( used for Wikipedia: this provides
    full UTF-8 support, multilingual interfaces, and also supports TeX,
    categories, and templating. It's also arguably the most battle-tested
    Wiki software out there. You might want to look at the Wikicities
    hosting service ( for a
    quick-and-dirty temporary solution (note, your content will need to be
    GFDL-licensed); you can easily move your content to your own site later
    -- it's based on a standard Linux/PHP/MySQL environment.
