Perhaps an <html> tag that would disable the wiki processing and could itself 
be disabled in the config file (similar to the whitelist flag, only give it 
to SysAdmins).

My goal it to insert an html form into a particular page (and protect that 
page).  I've modified some html through the WikiMedia:All_messages pages (in 
particular, to display a Creative Commons Liscence notice, but I don't fully 
understand the way that these messages are parsed, and I don't think I'd be 
able to do what I'm trying to do with it.

Maybe I just need to create a static html page and have my wiki pages link to 
it, but I'd rather stay in the wiki.
