I would like to keep embedded HTML and especially PHP code disabled in
the Wiki, not only because of security reasons, also because it would
cause mixing different markups in the Wiki, we already disagreed on
this regarding ReST and Markdown syntax support in the Wiki, it's
pretty much the same for HTML.

This is what I would prefer, so if you share the source, I'd convert it.
