you're right, was a bit slack. I went through and fixed up the highlighting
and a bit of the wording. The man page now refers to "master" and "slave"
where needed instead of just "device". Fixed patch is below.  For the other
problematic highlighting (mostly in the property calls) I'd rather have a
separate patch go in though.
