I was looking at Mediawiki.
Unless I wnat very small sections, such as the following structure.
With each subsection having its own page, then the wikis I have looked at will be unsuitable.
Imagine that someone hands you a 600 page document, and says "we know changes were made from the
previous version, go find them, and let us know what they were".
My deliverable for this class will be approx 600 pages (+-50), so trying to "look" through a
revision history would be very tedious. It might take hours.
I need some method to actually see the changes on the "page", and have some sort of approval
process, that would make permanent the removal/deletion of the text.
