Well spotted, Andrew!

The way to get things like this fixed is to report a bug to the relevant
project. Click on the 'bug report' button:


You installed the Haskell Platform on Windows, so please mention this in
the bug ticket. The problem will likely be in the Windows installer
script, and what docs were bundled with that specific installer.

Be as detailed in the report as you can, to make sure we can reproduce
what trouble you have.

In the meantime, you can always read the 'mtl' documentation on its
package page:
