In fact, it is 2.0.5. I will upgrade it over the semester break. I'll take
Neil's suggestion about "flash deleting" (my term for it), where you select
all, copy, erase, type the word "delete", save, reedit, and paste. I've
been having some other problems with mimetex, maybe a new PmWiki will help
resolve that, too.

Yes, I recall that, too. I'll put that in as well, keeping only a few
rounds worth of edits.
