[theme-reviewers] WPTRT best practice: PHP vs. JS

I didn't know there was one in JS.

I'd say PHP is fine. However I'd also recommend using failsafe code,
such as if (!class_exists('Markdown')) and similar to load the
libraries, since there may be conflicts with plugins including the
same library.
