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.
