It's still experimental but the Wikimedia Foundation is developing a visual
WYSIWYG type editor.

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/VisualEditor:Sandbox (try it)

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:VisualEditor

The goal is to make it easier to edit without the wiki syntax.  There still
will be an "advanced" edit option so that people can still use markup if
they want.
