manpages: consistent syntax
In the manpages, bold is used to denote characters the user has to enter verbatim, italic denotes placeholders and non-highlighted pieces are used as a structure: "[]" specifying an optional part, "{}" a mandatory part, with "|" used for alternations. The "!" for negation is better supported before the option than after it, too. The patch makes a few files consistent with this style already used in manpages.

This target will strip TCP options off a TCP packet. (It will actually replace
them by NO-OPs.) As such, you will need to add the \fB-p tcp\fR parameters.
-\fB--strip-options\fR \fIoption\fR[\fB,\fR\fI...\fR]
+\fB--strip-options\fP \fIoption\fP[\fB,\fP\fIoption\fP...]
Strip the given option(s). The options may be specified by TCP option number or
by symbolic name. The list of recognized options can be obtained by calling
iptables with \fB-j TCPOPTSTRIP -h\fR.
