The link I got from Gary Kirk wasn't the right one, but after some 
digging, I found the extension he mentioned. However, it seems to 
require PHP5, which I don't have- that's why I'm still running MediaWiki 
1.6.10, because it was the last version to support PHP4. My server has 
no plans to upgrade, last time I checked. Is there an older version of 
the ParserFunctions extension which is compatible with PHP4?
