Thank you, installed both at the same time. Now, next question is: how 
do I get the webkit preview to use for markdown files? There is no 
mention of it in the plugin manager, nor could I find it in any 
configuration menu.

Would I now need to download the geany-plugin package from that site and 
compile the plugins from scratch?

Thank you.
