Thanks Ryan, seems to work.

Some more notes on the wiki:

1. The wiki allows you to write <code><pre>, this isn't valid XHTML
because <code> is an inline element and <pre> is a block element.
Using <pre><code>...</code></pre> would be valid XHTML but the wiki gets
it wrong by including &lt;code&gt; in the output.
Therefor <pre><nowiki>...</nowiki></pre> seems to me as the only
possible way.

2. http://microformats.org/wiki/comments-formats seems to be invalid,
first error:
 comments-formats:38: parser error : Opening and ending tag mismatch: td
 line 32 and div

I've removed the TOC with __NOTOC__, and the output was valid
afterwards, therefor this seems to be a bug in Mediawiki.
(anybody may restore the TOC by removing the first line with __NOTOC__
in it, I've just done it for testing purposes)
