Problem Embedding a Gist from GitHub in Theme Factory Blog Page

Topics: General

I embedded some source code snippets from Gist on Github into my blog. On most web sites that use Gist, the background color is a neutral grey, but on my blog the background color is a hideous yellow. How do I change it to grey?

The blog is using The Theme Factory. I don't know if the .CSS is coming from Theme Factory or from GitHub.

You can see the blog page here (scroll down to see the Gists):

The Gists are embedded using Javascript tags like this:
<script src=""></script>

This has some information about how styles work in embedded Gists. Do I need to create my own .CSS file the way this author suggests?

If you remove the "highlight" class from the <table> element, it looks fine.

Where is the <table> element? I don't see it when I edit the blog post.

It's probably generated by the javascript. Launch FireFox and FireBug and see:


I know nothing about including Gists and options, but there probably are some that you can specify when you generate it.
In any case, this is unrelated to Orchard.
