We are in the process of moving blocks of ConfigDialog methods pertaining to one tab page to a separate class. FontPage is more or less done.  GenPage is in process.  This issue is about documenting the generic structure of the classes in a comment block.  The following is extracted from msg299519 of #31050.

# class TabPage(Frame):
#    def __init__(self, master):
#        super().__init__(master)
#        self.create_page_tab()
#        self.load_tab_cfg()
#    def create_page_tab():
# ...
The rest will be an adaptation of the description of the old design in the same message plus what we have actually done so far.

This issue includes editing FontPage to conform to the documented design.

[3.6] bpo-31083: IDLE: Describe the Page classes in configdialog (GH-2965) (#2973)

The next blockers are the tests for the other 3 tabs: #31001, #31002, #31093.  

Steps for converting block of ConfigDialog methods for tab X into a class.  Steps are updated from #31050.

* In create_widgets, change 'self.create_page_/highlight/keys/extensions/' to '/High/Keys/Ext/Page(note)'.
* In load_configs, comment-out load_X_cfgs.  If there is no problem moving all these calls into the class inits, method will be deleted.
* Copy the block for X into its appropriate position after class FontPage.
* Comment out old code.
* Before the copy, add 'class XPage(Frame):' and def __init__ as given in the outline.
* In the 'create_page_x' method, at the top, Pass 'self' instead of 'parent' as tk Var masters;
* delete 'frame = dialog.tabpages...';
* replace 'frame' with 'self' as master for widgets that used 'frame';
* delete 'return frame' at end.

After tests pass with revision above, delete original block of methods.

I have considered doing this before writing tests, but I don't quite feel comfortable doing so.  To convert tests written first:

* change 'XTest' to 'XPageTest' where 2nd X is abbreviated form.
* change setUpClass similarly as in FontPageTest;
* change test functions similarly as in FontPageTest; change 'dialog' to '' and 'd = dialog' to 'd ='.
* make other changes needed to keep tests passing, but there may not be any more changes needed.
