Here's the basic rundown.

After all of the libs are loaded, wp() is called.  This parses the 
incoming query, sets up the environment, and handles permalinks.  After 
that the template loader is called.  The template loader loads specific 
theme templates based on the parsed query.  All presentational stuff is 
done in the theme templates.  This includes how individual posts are 
rendered.  So, you probably just need to look over the theme development
