Question where to place axle stands

Hi, I've got a Clio II 2005 and I need to work underneath it. I'm using a Haynes manual and in the past they've always been very helpful. However this one says to jack the car on the sill jacking point (fair enough) but then says that the axle stands should only be placed on the sill jacking point. I just don't get it. I've done lots of jobs on cars and I'm usually OK, but this is the first time I've needed to get under one. I'm using a trolley jack. Is there a safe place to jack the car leaving the jacking points for the axle stands? Or, is there a better place to put the axle stands than on the sill?
