I have an apple cider similar to EdWort's recipe that finished fermenting about a week ago and is still in the primary fermenter. I siphoned some off into a glass last night and noticed that it is lightly carbonated. I was planning to leave it still, but this very light carbonation is really nice. I was wondering if I would be able to rack that into wine bottles and cork them. Will that small bit of carbonation remain after racking? Also, can the wine bottles handle that very small amount of pressure?

Not likely.
You will loose nearly if not all of the gas when you rack.

that happened to my first cider too, it was a really nice little fizz. you could just prime your bottles with less sugar if you like the light carbonation.
