That doesn't look very assuring

$ podchecker /pro/bin/plp /pro/bin/plp pod syntax OK. $ pod2latex -full -out plp /pro/bin/plp Unknown sequence A</td> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218. Unknown sequence D</a> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218. Unknown sequence D</a> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218. Unknown sequence N</a> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218.

    well from what I can spot with my smartphone pod2latex is complaining about inlined html. IIRC the man for pod::latex is pretty explicitely saying that it cant handle html.

    OTOH I did a testrun yesterday combining pod2latex -full and pdflatex and it produced pdf.

    but if you really need to cover inlined html you will always need a html2pdf solution.

    Cheers Rolf

      Yes, I have a large trailing section with

      =begin html lots of html =end html

      Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
