This looks interesting, but it's for Firefox, obviously, and I'm using  
Chrome. On the Chrome extensions site, I found this:

   "Edit with Emacs" < https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ljobjlafonikaiipfkggjbhkghgicgoh?hl=en-US 
# >

which also led me to  this:

  "TextAid" < https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ppoadiihggafnhokfkpphojggcdigllp?hl=en-US 

the latter of which seems to be more general and useful. TextAid can  
be set up to invoke any editor by simple use of ENV settings when the  
little server starts.

Incidently, I did try pmwiki-mode.el as mentioned in Patrick's email,  
but I couldn't get it to work. All it showed me was a blank page. The  
maintainer does note there may be some problems with the current  
version of pmwiki.

Thank you both!

I am wondering, was this information on the pmwiki.org website  
someplace and I just missed it?
