IMO, there are only two important kinds of Wiki:- (1) Wikis which have no edit history at all (like 99% of hand-rolled Wikis) (2) Wikis which retain a full edit history (like all the Wikipedia family)

Basically, my recommended solution would be to colonise a corner of Wikipedia (or WikiSource, or WikiBooks, or even the emerging WikiVersity - in fact, any one of the MediaWiki group). But probably the closest to what Pam & Rene were describing would be to start a "virtual textbook" on the Voynich on WikiBooks:

In fact, because this is really easy to go and do, I've just gone and done it:- :-)

I've given the new page the bare minimum of structure - but what do you think?

Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....

PS: you can upload (or refer to external) pictures with this, all edits are retained, you can edit part of a page (rather than the whole page), username and password for users help identify edits, you can view edit logs, etc. The MediaWiki family really rocks! :-)
