Hi Behdad,
or If you want a structured webpage you either use a CMS and use its
structuring tools, or use a wikipage and commit yourself and everyone
else submitting content to keep a high discipline on how the structure
should be, also, doing the right theming is definitively harder.
And at the same time CMS:es can end up being to structureish and in most cases you end up working with the structure by hand anyway. I haven't done too much Mediawiki, Moinmoin or Drupal styling, but I found them about equally hard to work with.
As I mentioned earlier, I'm going to give it a shot in just HTML for now.
You can keep discussing system X vs. system Y if you want to, but I wouldn't worry about that too much until we have something concrete to work with.
