Does the API always return question and answer bodies in HTML format?

Is there any provided way to get them in Markdown format, for easier local editing?

If not, please consider this a feature request to have that added.

Markdown won't be coming until write access, which is slated for a later version of the API.

    Plaintext will probably never be served, as its easily generated from HTML. – Kevin Montrose Jul 31 '10 at 23:47

    @KevinMontrose is Markdown still coming? – David Snabel-Caunt Jan 22 '12 at 18:20

I imagine that once write-access is supported, presumably in version 2.0, they'll have to return the markdown source along with the generated HTML.

Never mind markdown. Some of my apps just need plain text.
