Is there a wiki application that has a "publish" option that would create a bunch of html files that captures the current state of the wiki?

I would like to use a wiki on my computer, and then have the option of converting the current state of the wiki to a bunch of html files that I could easily move to an online server viewable by people.

Doesn't that defeat the purpose or am I misunderstanding the question? A Wiki is supposed to be a dynamic repository of information. Whereas the software itself should be able to track revisions and allow rollbacks if necessary, it should also be publicly available for your viewers...

So, why do you want to duplicate the wiki or 'capture' the intermim states?

BongSoo,

Good question.

The reason is that I would like to use the wiki personally to act as a dynamic repository of information.  However, I would like to be able to post this to a server for different people to see that only allows for static html (no php, jsp, cgi, anything) (its a company server that gives basic webspace for all their employees to post a "personal" webpage, but I wanted to use that space to actually be productive).

I could easily explain a manual way to do this, but I know of no wiki software that has this as an added funciton.

Sorry...

BongSoo,

What would a manual way be?

I have an idea of one manual way, but curious what your idea is.

I would display the page in my browser, go to View > Source (Page Source in FireFox) and that will display the HTML code. Copy and paste that into your own page (assuming you have an editor such as Dreamweaver, GoLive, etc.) edit as you see fit and save it to your server.

Good call!  Use the browser's own viewing mechanism to gather the HTML.  Another option would be to use a FireFox browser extension like "Scrapbook" to download the entire site.
