CSS2, section 9.9 <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/visuren.html#q30>:
"Each box belongs to one stacking context." I can't find any support
for the above statement.

The z-index property controls stack level within a stacking context. I
suppose the important question is this: Does any element, besides the
root element, belong to the root stacking context?
