T136458 Should HTML formatting/DOM manipulation (presentation, responsiveness) be done in JS (frontend) or in PHP (backend) [JG][edit]

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T136458

JG: PHP
ES: HTML output on the client as simple as possible, from caching perspective backend rendering is not optimal.
RK: Is `px` or `%` defined by wikitext?
JG: It's defined in wikitext
RK: ES was probably concerned by having the same wikitext rendered differently.
-> JG will add clarification that information comes from wikitext – DONE
