I am not sure about this. We are running Mediawiki for years and
nothing happened which stayed more than 24 hours. Many eyes...

I have tried in the GRASS wiki and get this with their layout template:
"The page you wanted to save was blocked by the spam filter. This is
probably caused by a link to an external site.

The following text is what triggered our spam filter: <table

I would prefer to get the div thing through since it is ready.
Otherwise I fear that just nothing will happen to the initial page...

(don't care about the absent links - it's on a different wiki).
