Default Filtering Text with Basic Formatting Only

I've been working with QuarkXPress and InDesign for many years, but have not yet found a way to filter text files from MS Word so that ONLY very basic formatting is imported. For instance, I want to import Word files WITHOUT font name, size and spacing information, but I want to RETAIN the formatting data for Roman, Italic, Bold and Bold Italic. I want to remove everything else, so in essence I want a plain text file that contains the <b>, <i>, <bi> and <p> flags but no other formatting data.

Does anyone know if this is possible, and if so what are the best tools?
