[pmwiki-users] Editing Background Colour of In-Wiki Fields

This is my first day using PmWiki, I have absolutely no idea what 
terminology to use here and will thus sound like a moron. Please bear 
with me.

I've set up a wiki for my game's website and done up a semi-custom skin 
for it. It works great, except that it's a dark theme with white text on 
a black background. There are a few fields where the background has been 
set to a light colour and therefore the text doesn't show up at all.

An example of what I mean can be found at 
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/BasicEditing - that yellow box and 
that list of additional pages in the upper-right hand corner. The 
background colours are the same on my site but the font colour is white, 
making everything illegible. The same thing happens to the box 
containing the editing tips on the edit page: it's white text on a white 

I need to edit these background colours, but I can't find where. It 
doesn't seem to be in the skin I borrowed's CSS file, and I can't find 
any wiki page to edit. It's no doubt something heartstoppingly stupid 
that I'm missing, but any help would be appreciated.
