This is a bug report for perl from jkeenan@cpan.org,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.16.0.

During the DuckDuckGo hackathon (http://act.yapc.eu/ddg2012/), I had 
occasion to discuss 
https://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=113740 with Rik Signes. 
He mentioned that one likely approach to the long-term maintenance of 
Pod::Html would be to dual-life it, i.e., to transfer its maintenance to 
CPAN. Anticipating that, I copied the source code and tests for 
Pod::Html from blead into a github repository, a copy of which can be 
found here:
https://github.com/jkeenan/Pod-Html.

This fork enabled me to study Pod::Html's source code and tests.  As I 
customarily do, I performed coverage analysis using Devel::Cover.  When 
I did so, I noticed that Pod::Html::anchorify() was not exercised during 
the test suite.  Since Pod::Html::htmlify() is used only within 
anchorify it, too, was implicitly untested.

The attached patch is written, I believe, so that it can be added to the 
Pod::Html test suite in the Perl 5 core distribution.  Please review.

Thank you very much.
Jim Keenan
