Hi guys I am trying to use Wikipedia API (apparently it is called MediaWiki) to retrieve articles from their database and display them in Flash application. The best way would be to retrieve a HTML formated article with images and stuff inside XML file. I have found the docs for that API http://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php but I cannot find the solution. Lets say I want to display article for the search query “Eye” or “Heart” any one know how to go about that? :)
