New to CSS - how to put background color into style sheet?
I am a newbie with CSS and actually not very asvvy.
I got this new full css template and would like to be able to change the background color on which the website "sits".
Originally the background color was within the html coding of every page like this: (I have deleted this, because I thought it is otherwise over writing the stylesheet command for the color?)
<body style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 0); direction: ltr;">
Now I would like to put the background color into the style sheet, so I can change the color site-wide, if required. The code in the style sheet is:
font-family: Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
What needs to be altered in the style sheet and what would I need to put onto the page source code??
Thanks in advance for your help and advice,
