Updates to user manual

Every time I clone the master, I have to delete the subsurface directory 
first. So I keep my master copy of the manual elsewhere in a 
Documentation directory that I copy _in toto_ to the subsurface 
directory to replace the directory that came with the master. Once this 
is complete then I do git format-patch.

The manual you pushed was the latest one I sent. I plan to tweak the 
Makefile a bit to achieve some small changes in formatting. For 
instance, it is not optimal to have serif as well as sans serif text in 
the same document.

I am continuously working with the manual and will send incremental ones 
at least every week.

Kind regards,
