Weirdest thing ever, maybe someone else has seen this?
Routine twentyeleven slight theme hack.
1. Create child theme
2. Populate style.css w/ Theme description etc. insert mandatory @importurl [etc]
3. Insert various stanzas to modify appearance (header mainly just as a matter of accuracy)
Now the default whitespace (which I tried to get rid of unsuccessfully) contains some of the PARENT style.css code as grey text.
Regards & TIA for any Ideas and/or suggestions
