Hikij: Haskell and Javascript based Wiki

Taking Matthias’ [introduction to AJAX and Haskell][inspiration] as inspiration, I decided to try to write a complete wiki using Haskell on the server side. This also grew from discussions we’ve had in recent weeks about distributed wikis and similar ideas, though Hikij has as yet none of those features. Because of my use of Javascript 1.6 features (and probably some other non-standard library functions), it’s Mozilla 1.8 or Firefox 1.5 or better only. But if you have such a browser, you can see the [Hikij wiki][hikij].
