That's due to this line in lib/init/init.bat:
if "%GRASS_HTML_BROWSER%"=="" set GRASS_HTML_BROWSER=%SYSTEMDRIVE%/PROGRA~1/INTERN~1/IEXPLORE.EXE
It should probably be:
if "%GRASS_HTML_BROWSER%"=="" set GRASS_HTML_BROWSER=%ProgramFiles%/INTERN~1/IEXPLORE.EXE
%ProgramFiles% will be set to the system's "Program Files" directory
(or whatever it is called on a particular system, e.g. "C:\Programme"
on a German system).
However, there are better solutions available on Windows, e.g.
rundll32 url.dll,FileProtocolHandler <filename or URL>
rundll32 url.dll,FileProtocolHandler "c:\Cygwin\usr\local\grass-6.2.1\docs\html\grass6.html"
rundll32 url.dll,FileProtocolHandler "http://grass.itc.it"
This has the advantage of using the default application rather than
