[CSS21] Issue 179 - proposal is incorrect

Issue 179 concerns the Example in which an inline element is split by a 
block-level element.

The proposal in the wiki (no reference provided) is to replace
"The resulting boxes would be an anonymous block box around the P"
with
"The resulting boxes would be a block box representing the P"

But there isn't a block box representing the P since it is inline. 
Rather, the boxes are: the block box representing the body which 
contains three block boxes: an anonymous block box around C1, the SPAN 
block box, and another anonymous block box around C2.

Cheers,
Anton Prowse
