This has been answered a lot.  Unless you limit things to just the very 
basics (like worse does), there just isn't going to be a great way to do 
this.  Many wiki's have nearly direct translation of markup to HTML and 
stores HTML so that wiki markup can be bypassed.

If you're looking for HTML editor, PmWiki is not the best choice.

If you're looking for a Wiki with very high level extensible markup that 
is very fast, PmWiki is an excellent choice.

The GUI buttons you reference are easily turned on in PmWiki and merely 
make some editor things easy by inserting the appropriate PmWiki markup 
on things selected, etc. (not WYSIWYG).
