Cant speak for the pmwiki site...but tables do allow for some structure inside of text based browsers... If that's interesting anymore.

I like blue, underlined links, it makes all links clear and easy to spot. That's the whole point of an effective design: simplicity, clarity, usability.
The only gripe I have with the pmwiki appearance is the layout. Of course, there is nothing that says you couldn't still include the old skin in the package. However, I would like to see something narrower, wide pages like in pmwiki and even wikipedia are straining to read, our eyes prefer a narrower column of text.
You could simply link several stylesheets and allow the user to select between a wide and narrow layout.
Also, it should switch to a DIV/CSS based layout and drop the table.
