FS#12110 - Manual: add metadata section, part 2

This is the 2nd part of adding a metadata section to the manual. The new subsection includes two tables to visualize the featuresset that is supported by our metadata parser for a) generic metadata tags (like ID3, APE, Vorbis, MP4, ASF) and b) codec specific metadata (like supported for .tta, .mod, etc).

Next steps will be to add important limitations of our parsers. In the forums questions about limited string lengths for comment or artist names are raised.

Last part submitted with 29899.

New version:
- Reformat first metadata-related table (switch first and second column)
- Split generic and codec specific featuresets into separate subsections

New version:
- new chapter "Audio and metadata formats"
- reformat of tabs
- added several notes to codecs (e.g. adding ATRAC3)
- made some notes conditional (e.g. for supported AAC profiles)
- added first items that describe limitations of metadata handling

Minor changes…

- RealAudio container format supports AAC, AC3, ATRAC3 and Cook (similar to m4a which supports AAC and ALAC)
- RealAudio G2 (Cook) is the supported "Real Audio" format
- ATRAC3 is the supported "Sony Audio" format

Added comments, removed the gapless table entry, and corrected PNG support.

Removed gapless from 2nd featureset table as well. Deleted note about gapless support.

v10 with slight changes has been submitted (r29894).

v12 introduces an overview of the featureset for each codec. For now the table shows seek/resume/gapless. I am not sure whether ATSC A/52 (AC3), ADX, ATRAC3, COOK or Dialogic telephony type support gapless.
