This is a bad idea. The html-docs should be in something like 
/usr/share/doc/<package name>/html like many other packages do this. Probably 
because of links in the html pages, they are grouped as kde.

Why not checking the different possibilities for places. IMHO an install 
script should _never_ expect anything without checking.
