Description
The lower left frame currently has links such as:

 <a href="x">Applet</a>
 <a href="y"><i>AppletContext</i></a>

where the italic indicates it is an interface.  This style
would be lost to a non-sighted user.  Want to add "class"
for non-italicized terms and "interface" for italicized terms.
This can be added to the<a> tags:

 <a href="x" title="class in java.applet">Applet</a>
 <a href="y" title="interface in java.applet"><i>AppletContext</i></a>

Notice we also mention the containing package, as this
information is valuable when two classes/interfaces have the same name,
such as List.
