[CSS21] possible list nesting mistake (outlines on inlines) in Appendix E

While trying to understand [1] I think I noticed an error in
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/REC-CSS2-20110607/zindex.html .  The
bullet numbered 7.2.2 should, I believe, be indented one additional
level, and numbered as 7.2.1.5.

Fundamentally, I think this is because it doesn't make sense that we
should draw the outline of an element for each line box in that
element, which is what the current text says.  I don't even know
what this means.

I think it was intended to say that outlines on inline elements
should be drawn as part of 7.2.1.

(Note that this does not affect the issue in [1], which relates to
outlines on blocks.)
