I don't know why wiki do not work properlly for you.

Another suggestion is to patch the digiKam handbook. It's not very
complicated. hanbook use docbook format:


It's a text file based on xml with section/subsection. The file is here :


Why using docbook format and not another format like ODF ? because the
file content can be processed by script for the internationalization
process. docbook can be converted to others publishing format as PDF,
PS, RTF, ODF, etc.


All huge technical documentations done in opensource use this format.
Another typical case is pro-editing as OReilly...

You can make a first try, post me a patch and i can fix and commit
your work on svn for inclusion.
