Thanks for the suggestions.  And thanks also to all the others who have 
responded with ideas.

I tried out Zope some time ago just so I'd have an idea what it's 
about.  My problem with using it for this purpose is that it seemed 
that the structure needed some planning.  Normally, I'd insist that was 
a *good* thing, but not for this application.  Here's I'd like the 
content to suggest structure and changes to content should 
"automatically" modify structure.  (I only use Zope as an example; most 
applications have that behavior.)

Based on a URL someone posted, I'm now trying out TWiki as a solution.  
Its auto-linking based on keywords is appealing, so is the plugin 
architecture and freeform information entry.
