  they are just spelled incorrectly, or maybe its better to say: improperly represented, with these two transliterations, and Allaah knows best.

as-Salaamu alaykum (or alaikum)
salaamun alaykum

the red letters may be added for an attempt at a closer representation of the arabic.  some people may write a symbol over the second a in salam to indicate that it is lengthened.

  ash-Shaykh Salih aal-ash Shaykh in the Audio Tape 'Wasaaya Abu ad-Dardaa' quotes one of the Sahaabah writing a letter which starts with Salaamun 'alaikum ie., with Tankeer & ends it wirh Assalaamu 'alaikum ie., with Ta'reef.

The Shaykhs goes on to explain this that it is way when writing letters but not when communicating with one another orally.

Wallaahu 'Aalam,
Wassalaamu 'Alaikum.
