Thanks, I hadn't realized TCOBrowser could also be used to browse  
through a local TeX tree (as opposed to a CTAN repository).

Does the document icon in the Local and Remote columns mean that the  
documentation has been found? If so, then it seems that TCOBrowser  
looks for a documentation file matching exactly the package name,  
right? That would explain why the local documentation for hyperref  
(namely /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/latex/hyperref/ 
manual.pdf) isn't seen, and why the local documentation for the AMS  
fonts (namely /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/fonts/amsfonts/ 
amsfndoc.dvi) is replaced by that (namely /usr/local/teTeX/share/ 
texmf.tetex/doc/latex/amsfonts/amsfonts.dvi) for the associated LaTeX  

Still, I'm surprised that the remote doc for hyperref (on CTAN) is  
taken to be tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/hyperref/doc/slides.pdf  
instead of tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/hyperref/doc/manual.pdf.  
How is this determined? From some CTAN mechanism?

Suggestion for TCOBrowser: it would be nice if, when moving the mouse  
over a document of MikTeX package icon, the associated path or URL  
was displayed in one of those yellow boxes (I don't know the exact  
name for these boxes).
