Good news everyone! It seems like I've found the affecting line which
gets latex to produce always pdf files!

I just generated a HTML version of the manual. It's still broken in
some aspects, but already partly usable. Mostly button names and
optional stuff is broken and it gets written to a single file up to

Some issues are:
- It seems to break on longtable (used in the appendix)
- it seems to break on optional if the tested value has capitals
(maybe it's the _, not the capitals itself)
- it seems to break on our \ButtonFoo macros when not ended with {} or
\<space>, i.e. \ButtonFoo doesn't work while \ButtonFoo{} does.
- \chapter*{\centering{Rockbox}} breaks because of the use of
centering (remove the centering to make it work).

I don't have the time to look into that further ATM but as far as I
can see will these be the main issues. I've commited a change to the
preamble which removes the line that broke htlatex (if somebody can
explain to me why this line broke the generation of dvi files please
let me know). So when looking at the LaTeX sources please make sure
you're using the latest cvs version (cvs module "manual").
