[MlMt] determining whether Markdown is active

Is there a way to programmatically determine whether Markdown is active 
in the current message draft?

I'm trying to write a Keyboard Maestro macro that takes certain actions 
depending on whether or not Markdown is active, and the popup menu at 
the top of a message draft isn't recognized by KM as a menu, a button, 
or anything else. I have to have KM search the screen for the graphic 
image of the "Plain text" option and act according to whether it's found 
or not, which is slow and clumsy. Is there an environment variable, an 
Applescript or other script query, a menu item whose state is dependent 
on whether Markdown is active, anything I can use to make this 
determination more elegantly?
