What is a "enclosed instance"?

Could some one please give me an example of an "enclosed instance"

I want to use  the following :

  AbstractDocument.AbstractElement myElement = new AbstractDocument.AbstractElement(doc, attrs, start, end);

When I compile my program I get the error as indicated in the error message box above

Thanks

Reg Bray

also to create an instance of an inner class, you need to have the instance of outer class if the inner class isn't static!
