Wiki Editing UI

Today I had to fill in some documentation in our internal servers.
We use mediaWiki.

I had a real hard time filling less than 2 pages of doc.
mediaWiki is really good if you have to do really basic articles, but seems a little bit too complicated and sometimes missing basic features (at least IMHO). Also, the editing UI is SO UN-userfriendly!

Why can’t they integrate with FCDEditor?

Do we really still need to use ” for italic, ”’ for bold and so on?
Why can’t I decide to have a carriage return that is not a new paragraph?

Am I ignorant about Wiki’s? That’s possible. 😀
Sometimes it looks like things are uselessly HARD to do. Why can’t I have buttons to edit in Wiki? Am I the only one who would like to have them?
