When writing in Emacs’ Org mode, export with `C-c C-e h o`.

A browser window pops up with an HTML representation of the document you can copy rich markup from, to then paste in Basecamp’s text area.

We’ve been using Lintje internally for a couple of days, and my commit messages have increased by 37%!
