The joys of pod

I'm writing some documentation in POD and having problems getting links
to work between pod documents.
I have two pod documents, let's call them grumpy.pod and dopey.pod.
The final documents that go to the client are in HTML format
(grumpy.html and dopey.html).
I thought that I could put a link to grumpy.html in dopey.pod and it
would happily work; eg.
Refer here to more info about L<grumpy.html>
But I get the following error message when I run pod2html:
C:\Perl\bin\pod2html.bat: dopey.pod: cannot resolve L<grumpy.html> in
paragraph 14. at C:/Perl/lib/Pod/Html.pm line 1562.
(This is using the pod2html tool that comes with ActiveState Perl for
Windows, in case that makes a difference).
I have tried a number of (what seemed like sensible) alternatives, read
the POD sections of "Perl in a Nutshell" and "Programming Perl" and I
am none of the wiser.
Is it possible to do cross-document links and, if so, how?
