There are such things possible with ikiwiki. If your interested in current status, you can glance over the discussions on ikiwiki.info, such as http://ikiwiki.info/todo/mdwn_preview/ The specific feature you're talking about on stack overflow hsa been cloned a bunch of times in general-use libraries. For an example of that, see http://code.google.com/p/pagedown/source/browse/ -- which can be shoved into just about any wiki program. (incidentally, ikiwiki uses markdown by default, but any (or multiple) markup compilers can be used. the traditional 'easy' setup involves a post-commit hook on the server that triggers a recompile of the wiki whenever someone checks in the source.) The default ikiwiki theme and css is very sparse, but there are quite a few drop-in replacements for them that look fancy and ajaxy. Please keep in mind that lots of people still don't like using this sort of thing. For the record, I'm one of them.
