Deleted pages show as a custom 404 page, which doesn't let you access 
the history and restore the old version back to life. Example page I 
created then deleted (that now shows as if it never existed):
http://docs.webplatform.org/t/javascript/testpage/first

If you happen to know this special url, you can seet the history page of 
the deleted page and possibly restore it:
http://docs.webplatform.org/t/index.php?title=javascript/testpage/first&action=history

Ordinarily in Mediawiki you get a page that says: "This page has been 
deleted. The deletion and move log for the page are provided below for 
reference".
