This is a great idea to use PmWiki to easily create content and to distribute 
it in a portable form or format.

An alternative or parallel approach to the same goal may be to write a pmwiki-
to-epub exporter -- the *.epub format is an open standard and widely supported 
among e-book readers and tablets:


BTW, an epub-to-pmwiki-importer may be also doable in order to read the e-
books in one's browser. Even if the dedicated e-book software is sometimes 
more comfortable for reading/navigating/anotating than a website in a browser.
