Thanks to Wayne and Allan.

I already had a play with PMWiki. It would do at a push, but I was
not impressed and I haven't even tried the Markdown extension yet and
after reading Allan's comments, I'm not sure I want to. OTOH, it did
pass the "easy install on Windows" test. I gave our Win SysAdmin the
url and he got it up and working w/o much trouble !

Any other ideas ?
