formatted text to markdown

You're converting some posts from an old blog to markdown. The formatted text is far closer to the finished product than the html markup, so it seems like a good place to start. Word wrapping seems to be the main area for optimization.

Start file
But I think that there will still be many uses for publications. To have many articles bound together into a group. A magazine. A book. An album. And I haven't seen this done very well, up to this point. (Several e-zines I've seen just release a PDF, which I resent.) Though perhaps I have not seen it done well because I haven't looked much—I have seen an online-novel-in-process, which gives some vague notion of length via the prominent Table of Contents, but nothing as tangible even as a scrollbar or page numbers all lined up. And certainly not as tangible as a physical depth in my hands.
