Please consider to use GRASS 6.1 for that. It was significantly improved
over 6.0. Release candidate 1 was published a few days ago, there will
be the official 6.1.0 very soon.

The integration of translated manual pages is currently an unsolved problem.
It was discussed earlier but no solution was searched. It's basically
a matter of adjusting the Makefiles to check for translations of the
'description.html' files.

Just use the right mouse button on the link, then 'save as' to save it.
Again, please fetch the files from GRASS 6.1 as 6.0 is already a bit dated.
