I tried this years ago (it's been around for quite some time) and found better results with his Marker[0] bookmarklet. It only converts whatever is selected on the page. It eliminates 1 out of the 2 issues I had with markdownifier, which is it's inability to figure out what to keep and what not to keep on the page.

The second issue I have affects both. Neither locally downloads linked content. Not having the images come down with the article means if the article were to go away, your local copy would be worthless unless you manually saved those pictures and altered the links pointing to them.
