Make more use of the tabularx environment. Currently this is Chapter 2 and 3.

Note: I have only tested this for the H1xx manual. Has someone set up a "build all manuals" environment to make tex-ing all manuals easier?
This task depends upon

Hi Dominik..

I have taken your tabularx changes for chapter 3 and incorporated them into my patch 4945 which reworks chapter 3 table contents...

Builds and looks OK for all Rls 3 platforms as far as I can tell

Although we should focus on the release platforms, it is also wanted that the manual builds for the other platforms. That is, we do not have to define a correct key-press to non-release targets, but we should at least define some key-press for them. E.g. (\\opt{IAUDIO_X5_PAD}{FIXME}). We should not avoid the newer targets by ignoring them, but instead define their unknown features by stating them as FIXME or something similar.

I applied your patch, but I think we should define a macro for the table width. That is, something like \\stdtblwidth. I don't think we should have \\textwidth for the in-text tables as that doesn't look too good. That works fine for the reference tables, but I think a e.g. 10cm width for the tables in the text looks better.

I think this task could be closed. New patch for easier table handling is mostly finished.
