The only way I know is to upload your pod in a module, and let
CPAN format it automatically 8-}

I asked the same question about a year ago, after finding that my
documentation was being formatted correctly by my local pod2html
utility, but being screwed up by the automatic CPAN formatting.
Nobody was able to explain the difference, apart from saying that
"something special" was happening with CPAN's customized version
of pod2html (which applies gray shading to groups of indented lines,
among other things).
