I think WordPress is a good tool for people whose ambitions are
journalistic rather than technical. I understand and appreciate the
appeal of WYSIWYG and all the attractive, modern WP themes.

If, however, you want well-structured content, collaboration and a
website that will stay stable for years to come, then PmWiki (or other
good wiki engines) might be the way to go.
