Subject: Double angle bracket delimiter in POD is not recognized.
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 521b
POD supports a double angle bracket delimiter which is handy when the contained text embeds angle brackets. This renders correctly in perldoc: =item B<< <Deck> = Session->new_cflt_deck; >> perltidy -html generates the following: <dt><strong><a name="new_cflt_deck" class="item"><strong>&lt;Deck</strong> = Session-&gt;new_cflt_deck; &gt;&gt;</a></strong></dt> Which renders as: <Deck = Session->new_cflt_deck; >> It appears to be broken in 20071205 and 20090616, 5.10.0 and 5.12.1 under Redhat5 64-bit.

The problem is in Pod::HTML which is distributed with perl. It does recognize multiple angle brackets but makes an error in this case.
