This morning's daily build for X5 took a giant leap forwards in this
department. We haven't got any run-time comparisons done yet, but I would
really think that we should be pretty much on par with the original firmware.

The best possible way: checkout the manual from CVS, add/edit your changes,
make a diff and post it as a patch in the patch tracker:

    http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/index.php?type=4

Another good way: just write up your suggested wording for the manual section
you want to improve, usiong plain english language and file that as a patch,
or join IRC and talk to the manual guys when they're around.

Make the patch use category 'manual'.

Welcome to the merry world of Rockbox!
