Sure, it's feasible, but it really depends on how the main page
is constructed as to whether it will work out.  If the main page
is itself a php script, then you can do the equivalent of


and have a special PmWiki skin that does nothing but return the
HTML version of the markup.  Of course, it's up to the main page
to provide any css definitions or other things that might be
needed to render the markup correctly, since in this usage
PmWiki doesn't have any ability to affect the HTTP headers or the
<head> section of the main page.
