Added a link to CSS21 for "anonymous inline".

I don’t think we should make “inline” to links, as there are too many occurrences of the “inline” and “block” across all the specs. Please let me know if you disagree.

Similar issues occur with "Out-of-flow" in Section 5.1 and with other terms elsewhere. If the expectation is that no one will try to read this document without having read and internalized all of the terminology in [CSS21] and [CSS3-WRITING-MODES], that should probably be made a lot more clear in Section 1.3 and/or terms used precisely but defined elsewhere emphasized in some way (providing actual links/references on first use here to definitions elsewhere would not be implausible).
