You've looked at wikimatrix.org. I notice they don't list Joey Hess's
ikiwiki is a wiki compiler. It converts wiki pages into html pages
suitable for publishing on a website. Unlike many wikis, ikiwiki
does not have its own ad-hoc means of storing page history, and
instead uses a revision control system such as Subversion.
I'd add ikiwiki to wikimatrix.org, but they require registration; I'm
not that interested.

I don't really know what these would look like, and couldn't get
Google to give me a good answer on which wikis would have them.

ikiwiki is written in Perl.

The compiled wiki is served as static HTML files. ikiwiki is packaged
for etch, you could probably just re-build it for sarge.

Joey Hess likes Markdown, so I know it supports that.
