How can I copy text from a webpage (ex. this one) and use it to answer a question on SuperUser while retaining formatting?

What software can act as an intermediary to convert a document (MS word recognizes the bolded text), to a markdown copyable format?

@slhck How about something for webpages like this – wizlog Nov 11 '11 at 14:12
@slhck Are there any that aren't on a blog? Blogs aren't accessable from my school. – wizlog Mar 22 '12 at 16:37

Although this doesn't completly answer the question, using the site shlck suggested works for webpages (it doesn't let you upload files for conversion...)
