I would recommend using the MediaWiki software
(http://wikipedia.sourceforge.net/) 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 (http://www.wikicities.com/wiki/Wikicities) 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.
