xfree86: .BI style: monitor section in xorg.conf man page

The xorg.conf manual uses the following convention in most of its
sections:

bold = text to be copied literally to the config file,
italic = a symbolic name to be substituted by a true value.

Some configuration keywords seem to have been changed into generic
options.  Prepending Option to the manual entry swapped the
bold-italic logic.  This patch restores the convention in the monitor
section and consists of

-.BI "Option " "\*qPreferredMode\*q  " \*qstring\*q
+.BI "Option \*qPreferredMode\*q \*q" name \*q

modifications.

Plus a few minor changes (Modes → Mode) and a typo fix.
