I have tried and tested NWikis ability to export and import XML files and is seams to work flawlessly.
I then got the idea to try and export some pages from a MediaWiki site (WikiBooks) to be precise, and try and import them into NWiki ...
Well you can all guess ... it did not work, however, after closer inspection of the MediaWiki XML file I realized that it should be possible to write a parser that would take the MediaWiki XML tags and replace them with NWiki replacements.
There are many tags in the NWiki XML file that are LMS dependent, these are what makes NWiki more suited to our educational needs. I am guessing that if there is no corresponding tag in the MediaWiki file then they can be simply inserted with defaults.
I am imagining a stand alone parser at the moment but I'm sure that this could be written into the php scripts that read in the XML files and it could be implemented transparently in NWiki.
What do the rest of you wiki'ers think?
