texdoc runs on Windows. texdoctk does not (except using Cygwin or
similar). With a standard MikTeX installation you can just type `texdoc
sectsty' in Start->Run... and the sectsty manual pups up.
The WinEDT editor has a very usefull macro extension LaTeXdoc
<http://winedt.org/Macros/LaTeX/LaTeXDoc.php> for finding LaTeX
documentation on a Windows system.

On my Windows box texdoc tries to locate the documentation on CTAN if
nothing is found on my system.
