    C<You B<certainly> can.>

    Not with fixed formatting. A fixed font doesn't make formatting fixed :)

    =pod C<B<Animals> B<Fruits>> C<Cow Apple> C<Goat Pear> C<Elephant Banana> C<Monkey Orange> =cut
    Besides that, pod2text puts "" around C<> stuff. Quite useable, but not in this situation.

    - (do not use).

      Ah, not so much formatting as autowrapping.. I see your point. So I spent a while trying to tickle linebreaks out of the pod translators, and while there are possibilities for certain target formats, there's no interoperable way to combine them. Oh well. :-/ I'll see if I can come up with anything.
