I think a "wiki" is a collection of articles and documents, a document itself being a collection of articles. (Incidentally I prefer "story" to "article" so as to distinguish from grammatical and other uses of "article" and it gives a clear path to tie into emerging argumentation models.)
A wiki "story" then is composed of one or more pages. I then look to XSL for the definition of a page, which divides rendition into repeatable header/footer areas & a body area. (In this regard, you can use "heading" or "caption" in the manner that you now seem to use for "header"). A "subpage" is another matter altogether, for its existence is functionally dependent on that of a superordinate page; a subpage often has overflow content from its superpage but it could be an earlier version of the superpage; in other words, a subpage contains material that is effectively attached to another page.
A wiki page is a container for content which, because a single story can be spread across multiple pages, means a single page may contain only //part of// a story. Page content can be of many varieties, e.g., paragraphs, tables, and lists. Many documents contain **titled and sequentially-numbered sets of paragraphs & subsections** which we both would call a "section" (as XHTML 2.0 does).
A document is often divided into front-matter, body, and back-matter; I don't believe that a story is similarly divided. Thus the body of a page for a story within a document may be the container for content that is part of one of these three document divisions.
Some of these concepts are perhaps better represented in a 'semantic page structure' as follows:
| **legend:** | X::Y //where Y is-a X// | X:Y //where X has-a Y// | ?=zero or one\\*=zero or many \\+=one or many

In many wiki languages, including creole, a newline works
as above specified for all kinds of alineas except for regular
text paragraphs. In that case, a single newline is ignored ;
a logical newline is marked by a double newline ; a visual
newline is set by a special break tag.
I don't yet understand why this approach seems a significant issue for you. Would you mind giving an overview of its faults? Also, your definition of "alinea" -- which involves a "string" -- appears at odds with its standard definition as a //single character//... (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alinea).

called the paragraph sign or the alinea ...
