as I said earlier the pulldown menu shows documents *inside* the site. 
The Wiki page lies outside the site. So either put a link and trust the 
ability of users to click on the link. Or use some javascript to do the 

If you'd create a document that links directly to the wiki you wouldn't 
be able to edit it anyway since clicking on it would take you to the 
wiki ...

this one opens a new window:

<script language="JavaScript">
  function newWindow(url) {
    mywindow=window.open(url, 'selector', "height=760, location=no, 
menubar=yes, status=yes, toolbar=yes, resizable=yes");
    mywindow.location.href = url;
    if (mywindow.opener == null) mywindow.opener = self;

  function redirect_to_wiki() {

  setTimeout("redirect_to_wiki()", 500);
