help understanding changing background color

  • 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

    where in style sheet the changes actually take place

    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.

    Thank you for explaining so well. Have a good weekend.
