You could also try TWiki. - I like that I can add code:
* To list all files in a directory that contain a specific pattern in
the title, for automatic TOCs or templates
* To create sortable tables
* To display content entry forms, for use in structured pages, or dated comments
* For which I have barely scratched the surface

Phil Gochenour wrote an article for the Sep/Oct 2007 issue of Intercom
that describes how to set up a structured wiki. This article caught my
interest before I started contracting at my present company, where we
use it heavily. Since the fall I became the TWiki administrator and am
still learning all that it can do. While the software version has
changed in three years, the pointers Phil gives still apply.

Hope STC doesn't shoot me for hot linking, but they should really work
on that PDF security if they don't want this to happen:
