Yep, it is.

I haven't used it, but Gemini looks very versatile. And even if it won't
do quite what you want, skins are pretty easy to tweak. (Gemini is also
one of the more complicated skins to tweak, simply because of all its
options, but a skin is basically an HTML/CSS page with extra code to
tell PmWiki where to put things.)

I don't know about other editors, but on my host I can edit text files
through CPanel's File Manager. (cPanel is the account administration
package.) Very bare bones editor, but if you're on the road it's better
than nothing. At home, my FTP client associates .php files with my text
editor. For those with shell access, there are probably many more options.
There was something earlier this year about configuring pmwiki to edit
text files, but I don't remember what the result was.
