Docs on ModelAdmin.form attribute need improvement

At the moment it is not really clear from the docs that you have to supply a subclass that already has a Meta class in it. From reading it I thought this would be added by the admin (as happens if you don't set the form attribute). This interpretation is also enforced by the lack of a Meta class in the validation example given later on. The attached patch fixes the example and tries to be a bit more explicit in the form attribute explanation.

(In [8395]) Fixed #8299 -- Clarified the ModelAdmin.form option. Also added an inner Meta class to the ModelForm example in adding custom validation to the admin. Thanks jarrow for the report and initial patch.

The link to the section is somehow broken. At least with the locally generated docs my patch worked. I looked the syntax up here:
