bug#19368: 25.0.50; NSM prompt is not self-explanatory enough

To reproduce:

  emacs -Q
  M-x eww RET www.google.com RET
  Click on the "Sign in" link

The NSM shows a buffer with description of why it failed to verify the
certificate of accounts.google.com, and prompts in the minibuffer like

  Continue connecting? (No, Session only, Always)

It expects me to press either N, S, or A, but that is not clear enough
from the prompt.

I suggest to change the prompt to something like this:

  Continue connecting? ([N]o, [S]ession only, [A]lways)

Alternatively, the first letter could be underlined (assuming we can
rely on every supported terminal to be able to display underlined
