Default Using infoboxes to define trunk sys

There seems to be some confusion as to how to use - and call - the various infoboxes we use as templates on the various TRS articles. These infoboxes should never be hard coded, as it makes it far and away more difficult to track down if we need to make changes to them. Instead, they are called using a special structure surrounded by '{{'' and '}}' (I have no idea what they are called as symbols - they appear to the right of 'P' on the keyboard and are the shift of the square brackets).

This article in our wiki goes into a lot of detail about using infoboxes, and some of the parameters (some call them 'tokens') that are used to fill them in; if you have questions about this please ask here. We can improve this article only if folks read it and ask.
