"...Yes, plain ASCII rocks. But one of the beauties of POD is that it is so easy to convert..."
I'll second that. I have often been tempted by complex markup languages until I came across Stas Beckmans
site (stason.org) after attending a local pm

All the documentation
was available simultaneously in printable PDF (see the top RH icons) and viewable online via html and in Perl itself. For those that are interested it is processed using docset, Pod::HtmlPsPdf
And all editable via POD.
