Teams Wiki and SharePoint Wiki same format
Why is it that wiki's created in Teams are not created as a SharePoint wiki instead of the mht-format.
It would be very nice being able to edit from the SharePoint site.

While we are at it, WIKI's have certain expectations. Currently neither format really meet that need. The whole point of a WIKI is to make content creation and editing as simple as possible while enabling cross-linking and making that also as easy as possible.
The current Teams "WIKI" is in no way a WIKI by definition.
A good WIKI not only lets you easily create cross-links and new pages but also lets you edit using plain text at high speed. So PLEASE let's adopt an industry standard - preferably the Commonmark version of Markdown which so many other tools support (including VScode).

I expect this change to include a migration tool for the existing content in MHT
another drawback of these lazy mht file association to teams: each page in a wiki is saved as a seperate mht file, order of pages in a "wiki" is not saved in mht, association of different mht files is not saved inside / aside but somewhere in the hidden "Teams configuration".
This makes it absolutely impractical for backup & restore, moving it to other sharepoint sections, etc...
IMHO Teams wiki is going to be killed by MS in the future, looks like there is no *REAL* investment on developping useful features/fix major usability issues...

It would really be nice if the WIKI documents that I create in Teams were also viewable in the associated Sharepoint Site. We create all our Wiki Documents inside of Teams and those documents are only viewable as .mht documents inside of the Sharepoint Documents section.
Teams wiki sucks. Why would you assembly a wiki with good quantity of information if it does not have even a way to search stuff one may be interested on ???

Agree, Teams Wiki should be editable and searchable in SharePoint. No matter they are the same with SharePoint Wiki or not.

I'd rather not have the old sharepoint format which is in sharepoint pages. html works for me. given SharePoint Online is backing this, there's no reason to pack bits into the .mhtml format imo.
