Very confused about themes

I've already read up on all the theme documents and guides, but I;m a bit confused about editing the html. I get that to make any html changes, I have to copy the applications/vanilla/views/ stuff into my_theme_folder/views/ directory, right?

The problem is, I can't seem to understand how these templates are structured. All the files are 99% php and I can't find most of the code for specific pages. For example, I want to edit how the discussions listing is layed out, so I went in views/discussions/discussions.php and there's nothing but php. Where do I find the stuff that says "Make a li tag, put the title here, put the comment count here, etc etc"?

    If I were you, I would download the BrandFriendly. In it, you will find a sample on how you can modify the HTML (defaultmaster.tpl under views), and how to affect the design with a CSS (a custom.css file under design)
