Hello Reviewers,

I'm not that well acquainted with security in PHP and WP so it might be a
bit dummy question, but I have tough time following the parsing and
formatting practices in WP themes. Since there is a Formatting section in WP
function list -
http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference#Formatting_Functions , and
some of the functions seem pretty similar to the same function names in PHP,
what is the rule and is it required for the WP functions to be used instead,
are they always better than plain PHPs?
