Most of the good wiki sites have a page export function, usually listed 
on the "special pages" page. Wikisource's is at 

This will give the wiki formatted text, the same as you get from the 
edit page. But, overall, it's much less work, once you've drawn up a 
list of pages you need to grab, and it is much easier on the server, if 
you need to repeat the process.
