I've released msman 0.2, a free Perl script that downloads MSDN web pages,
converts them to local UNIX-style man pages, and optionally displays them.
Sample usage: "msman CreateFile" displays documentation for the Win32
CreateFile() function, downloading and converting it first if needed.
It's still beta quality, but it works on the pages I've tried so far.
Requires: Perl and either pod2man or nsgmls with docbook2man-spec.pl

A couple of updates to my announcement of msman:
Until a short while ago, Internet Explorer was downloading that as a .tar
file. I've changed the MIME type to prevent that.

It also requires the LWP::UserAgent Perl module, which isn't installed by
default in many Perl distributions, including Cygwin's. To install it,
you can run:
perl -MCPAN -e shell
from the shell prompt and then:
force install LWP
from the "cpan>" prompt after answering any questions it asks.
