Thanks Robert, Paul, Hassan and April for your helpful advice. One 
question for April:

April you indicated that it may be more difficult to alter the look of 
the Mediawiki interface. Did you mean changing the html code? DO most 
wikis allow you to change the html code? I do not like to use tables for 
layout and prefer to layout structure with CSS instead. You see, I  feel 
I am strong in CSS coding and so I feel I can change the look and feel 
using CSS styles no problem and so maybe it doesn't matter too much if I 
can't tamper with the html code. However maybe it would help if I could 
alter the html code too. What do you think? I would like to be able to 
alter the look of the wiki and so do you still think that maybe 
Mediawiki isn't for me or would using CSS styling allow me to control 
the look entirely or only partially?

(If I can't control the look entirely, I might use either phpwiki[1] or 
taviwiki[2] instead - if they are any better at this control)
