Changing the CSS of the site

Working with the Jekyll blog, I was wondering how to change the CSS of the site? I have the same set up as Guil does at the end of the lessons.

You can change CSS either internally or externally.

To do it internally, just put your CSS code between style tags, like that:

<style>
   foo {
        /* code code code */
    }
</style>

But if you want to change CSS externally, using a file like something.css, you have create that file, put your CSS code in it (do NOT use style tags in that case), and link your .html file to it using a link tag inside the head of your HTML. Your link tag should look like this:

  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="something.css">

Where "something.css" is the name of your file.

Thanks, but I'm talking about uploading it to Github pages and using Jekyll it is changed to SCSS without using the external style sheet provided.

Oh, sorry =P
