intro: adding a toggled additional info section

To not overload the page with a lot of information some additional
information that is mostly only useful for new or not very experienced
users is "hided" within a section that is toggled off by default. The
user need to click on the extra new added button to make the section
visible.

<h4>Welcome to the quick download site for installation and LiveCD images!</h4>
<p>There are multiple ways to get the various types of images Debian is providing.
The main goal of this site is providing easy to use download links for the
images that have users mostly downloaded from Debian. There is a big chance
you will find here your wanted image directly without further steps.</p>
<p>We provide all kinds of installation images, supporting installation and use
on many types of system: laptops, desktops and servers.</p>
<p>And we also have created so called live images that you can run Debian on your
computer directly for testing without having to install it first.</p>
## translators: the following <div> paragraph about non-free is taken from
## /english/releases/stretch/debian-installer/index.wml
<div id="firmware_nonfree" class="warning">
<p>
If any of the hardware in your system <strong>requires non-free firmware to be
loaded</strong> with the device driver, you can use one of the
<strong>unofficial</strong> images including these <strong>non-free</strong> firmwares.

<h3>Additional Info</h3>
<div class="centered-middle-50 centered-middle-50-none-list">
<p><em><strong>Provided image types - official vs. non official images</strong></em></p>
<ul class="centered-middle-50-none-list">
<li>The Debian Developers are required to follow the rules of the
<a href="$(HOME)/social_contract#guidelines">Debian Free Software
Guidelines (DFSG)</a>!<br/>
This mean that all installation images, no matter on the supported
platform or architecture, need to be made and created only based on
free software that is based on the ground of the DFSG.</li>
<li>Unfortunately quite a lot of manufactures of PC hardware (e.g.
CPUs, NICs or video cards) are requiring the usage of a firmware blobs
to make the hardware work as expected.</li>
<li>Given such firmware files are pre-compiled binaries with no official
accessible source code makes them closed source (by the DFSG).
This also means that such files <strong>can't</strong> be part of any
official Debian installation image and are excluded.</li>
<li>The Debian developers are aware that all official installation
images can cause problems while the installation process or will
mostly create an not fully working Debian installation if no further
steps and precautions are made.</li>
<li>Because of this circumstance there are also images provided which
does include such required firmware files for getting fully functional
hardware. They are all have an additional suffix <em><strong>non-free</em></strong>
as they include non-free parts from a view of the DFSG. Because such
images violating the DFSG they can't be an official Debian image and
the Debian project is marking them as <strong>non official</strong>
images.</li>
<li>Even if the images marked as non official you are not alone if you
want or need to use them! The Debian support channels will provide help
to you if required.</li>
<li>New users to Debian should choose such an non-free image for better
first timer user experience!</li>

## translators: The following <div> paragraph about non-free is taken from
## /english/releases/<current_stable_release>/debian-installer/index.wml

<p><em><strong>Summary:</strong></em><br/>
If any of the hardware in your system <strong>requires</strong> non-free
firmware to be loaded with the device driver, you probably want to use
one of the <strong>unofficial</strong> images including these
<strong>non-free</strong> firmwares.</p>
</div>
<p><em><strong>Supported architectures and platforms</strong></em></p>
<ul class="centered-middle-50-none-list">
<li>Debian can be used on various platforms that are based on different
CPU architectures and we build images for almost all of them. The probably
most used platform in Debian today is named
<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86-64">amd64</a> (started in
2000) and even hardware that was bought not recently will be build up
by this platform. So even if your are unsure about your local
machine you mostly can simply grab an image build for this platform.</li>
<li>Another platform that might be interesting for you is called in Debian
i386. The importance of this platform has decreased rapidly over the
past years, some other distributions have dropped the support already.
In case you are required to use an image for that platform please use
one of the buttons for more downloads further down.</li>
<li>Each release of Debian is supporting a lot of various other hardware
architectures than the Intel based. For the current Debian <current_release_name>
release there are also images available for a list of the architectures
that Debian is calling than Release Critical platforms. The release
team is deciding which platform will be part of this list for a stable
release. A platform which is called release critical will get security
support for the whole live span of a release!</li>
<li>
Debian is providing images not only for the release critical platforms,
all platforms are called <a href="$(HOME)/ports/">ports</a> within the
Debian universe.</li>
</ul>
<div class="tip">
<p><em><strong>Summary:</strong></em><br/>
If you need a image that is for another platform than
<strong>amd64</strong> please use one of the buttons for more images.
For the Debian <current_release_name> release the full supported
architectures/platforms are
<a href="$(HOME)/ports/i386/">i386</a>,
<a href="$(HOME)/ports/amd64/">amd64</a>,
<a href="$(HOME)/ports/arm/">arm64, armel, armhf</a>,
<a href="$(HOME)/ports/mips/">mips, mips64el</a>,
<a href="$(HOME)/ports/mips64el/">mips64</a>,
<a href="$(HOME)/ports/powerpc/">ppc64el</a> and
<a href="$(HOME)/ports/s390x/">390x</a>,
you will find various kind of images for these architectures.</p>
