 Pod Problems (using =pod, nesting fonts, and Pod::Text)

I have two questions regarding Perl5 pod documentation:

1) I dont completely understand how to use the '=pod' directive mentioned
   in the perlpod manpage. Can someone show me a few examples of how to
   use it? Also - how many of the pod2xxx translators will recognize it?

2) Is there some standard as to whether or not nested interior commands
   are permitted (as in "I<this is B<not> a good idea>")? I sure hope it
   isnt specific to whichever pod2xxx translator you are using?

While Im at it - is there a more recent version of Pod::Text than the
one in Perl5.002? That one seems to have some bugs regarding the handling
of "=item" and "C<$stuff->{here}>"?

 "And miles to go before I sleep."     DISCLAIMER: I said it, not my employer!

The pod stuff in 5.003 patch 0 doesn't seem to know about =head3 either
- anyone have patches for that?
