WikiPublisher side effects

It took a little wedging, but have WikiPublisher server up and running on home PmWiki (on top of Ubuntu 10.4 LTS). Have noted a couple side effects/oddities:

  • anything using the HTML strikethrough tag becomes invisible in the output PDF
  • PDF documents attached to a wiki page become included in the output PDF, while linked documents become footnotes

The latter one is probably a feature, though I don't know that I can determine "why".  In any case, I'm enjoying myself, working through the "How to Produce a Book" howto.  Anyone know of any other pitfalls/gotchas?
