Hi, I'm not certain this is a bug in Pod::POM but I think it probably is, so I hope you don't mind me reporting it. perlpodspec mentions the L<"section"> style syntax as linking to a section within a document. The Perl core docs use this frequently and I noticed that perldoc.perl.org does not deal with these links correctly. For example, search for 2 double quotes ("") in http://perldoc.perl.org/perlnumber.html - the link does not work. I note that perldoc.perl.org uses Pod::POM behind the scenes, so I have written an example POD file (see attached) and run it through Pod::POM's pomdump command. I note it outputs two double quotes around the section name contained within double quotes. I realise this isn't the best bug report ever, but I thought I should mention and let someone more familiar with the code take it from here. Tom
