It's still a bit odd though. The Pod source has what you'd expect:

One effect of these rules is that C<-bareword> is equivalent to C<"-bareword">.

The way C<...> snippets are rendered in plain text is to put double quotes round them, but it seems like there's something in there which avoids doing so to a snippet already surrounded by double quotes.

In the HTML versions code snippets are usually rendered in a fixed-width typeface. Yet in this particular case on both Cpan Search and perldoc.perl.org those snippets aren't distinguished in any way from the surrounding text, but the bitwise negation snippet in the following paragraph is.

Huh?
