Thanks. I have added an link to the section of CSS2.1 that contains
the definition of the stacking of outlines that this paragraph supersedes.

We could probably do even better if there was additional anchor terminology
that could be linked to and used to extend the base behavior, but for now
I think that reusing the vocabulary from the relevant CSS2.1 section and
linking to it should be fine.
