API info boxes

Main API pages (also known as "technology" pages) are used to provide an overview of a given class, interface, object, or CSS property. Each of these types of technology has specific key points that need to be summarized and displayed. Near the top of the page is an area reserved for a box containing this summary. This page shows what each of those should, roughly, look like.

Note: The exact appearance of this content is to be determined yet. This is at present more about what kind of information each contains, but currently what's shown here is what they currently look like rather than what we want them to look like in the end.

The goal, however, is for each to be styled similarly for the sake of consistency.
