I am trying to find exactly where the changes can be made within a WordPress theme. I have looked into index.php and have the following, but have not found any files that match:

 * Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn't do anything, but loads
 * wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme.
 * @package WordPress

 * Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
 * @var bool
define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);

/** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */

What are you trying to change? theme files are found in the: wp-content/themes/**theme-name** directory. There you can change the header.php footer.php or whatever. There is also a style.css that will contain most of the theme's CSS. – ckpepper02 May 9 '13 at 18:15
Did you try looking at the codex? – vancoder May 9 '13 at 19:14
