MediaWiki markup is quite messy and unless MediaWiki has an XML export
feature that I don't know about, I don't see what good XSLT can do you.
(The regular MediaWiki API generates XML results with wiki markup
embedded in it).  It looks like mediawiki itself can create pdf's (see
any page on en.wikibooks.org for example), but the rendered pdf is not
that attractive.

I remember something about a Haskell module to parse mediawiki markup,
if that is of any use.
