If you need only English content, you can fetch the English Wikipedia MySQL dump.
You can also access any article programmatically, one at a time in XML or as an RSS Feed.
You can even collect multiple Wikipedia pages in a basket and convert them all to a single PDF document (just like an ebook) with just a few mouse clicks and offer this is a download.
