Classes can be nested to any depth. Top-level static classes can be nested only within other static top-level classes or interfaces. (what this means??)

If the inner class is sub-classed outside of the outer class (only possible with top-level nested classes) (why??)

Translation: static inner classes cannot be nested to any depth, and are an exception to the rule.
