We're basically looking for something with a Web interface that enables
you to create, modify and delete knowledge base entries, and then
publish them on the Web. It'd be cool if the publishing occurred

MySQL, XML, whatever. And, of course, the simpler it is to use, the
better. Any and all suggestions welcome. Thanks. DB.

You could probably make do with a wiki very well. However, if you want a more sophisticated tool,have a look at Zope and its plugins. Somebody will probably have to customize, but I can virtually guarantee that with Zope you can get *precisely* what you want.
