    I created a child theme for twenty eleven. I now want to change the background color for the page to be white. I can change it from dashboard through appearance->background. However, I am not sure where in style sheet the changes actually take place. Does it change the parent's style.css or child's style.css? I do not see the changes in either of the style.css files. So how does the background color change?

    Please explain to me bacause I do not want to mess with the parent twenty eleven files.

    Thank you,
    Priya

    it outputs an embedded style into te head section of the site -
    view the html code in the browser to see where;
    or use a browser inspection tool such as Firebug to find out more.
