You also have a textarea xproperty type which offers either the wiki editor or 
the wysiwyg editor.

You get something similar with forms and the edit button which is wired 
automatically to edit the form.

It just queries all pages having xobjects of a given xclass, see

Using the “TOC-way” is what you’d use in a standard first generation wiki 
(because there’s nothing else). In XWiki you are able to go much further with 
applications built using xclass, xobjects and xproperties. You should try it 
(even if not for this use case), just to see/feel the power of it.

Your choice, I can only make suggestions ;)

FYI I’ve fixed and committed http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XRENDERING-240. You 
could get it by using a snapshot build, see
