Looks good to me, except the greyscale variant of the `+F`/`-F` option: 
The order has to be `G` /before/ bit depth, not the other way round as 
currently documented. Also, since the `g` is to be taken literally, 
rather than being a placeholder for something, I think it should be 
wrapped in <code> instead of <em>. (Personally I'd even lean towards 
also making it uppercase for more clarity, though it might be argued 
that only the actual option "keys" should be rendered in uppercase.)
