    I know that this Class B airspace extends from 6,000' to 10,000' - but what does the circled "17" denote?

    This is from the legend on the LHS side of a sectional chart.
    I think it answers your question

    Yes! Thank you! That's one problem when looking at sectionals on skyvector.com, I suppose - you don't have/see that sort of thing.

    Actually you can! Instead of viewing sky vector sectionals on "WORLD VFR" Use the individual section of the chart for that particular area. In the top right of the section chart area, you can see the name of the chart such as "New York" "Detroit" Chicago" etc... Select whatever chart name you are looking at to see just that sectional chart. Then you can zoom out to get the key and the border information for using the sectional chart. Select WORLD VFR to see them all stitched together.
