As you have pointed out, an automatic

are still working on improvments of the conversion.
The conversion is done with a parser we developed from scratch - as
mentioned in a previous post. The mediawiki markup is translated
into an internal representation which then gets transformed to latex (to
be more precise "context") - this is the hard part. It is slightly easier to
transform the internal representation back to html since some css-style
information can be maintained.
As I havn't been able to preview
