The majority of work is done in the html area, using wordpress’s custom php templating system. Once you’re head around the basic concept of the wordpress loop, and begin to learn the template tag’s, you’ll be there =)

Css is nothing, I would suggest you learn some php and make the WordPress codex your bible.

If you’re creating a basic wordpress theme, it really doesn’t take a whole lot of PHP knowledge. You just need to kind of have a grasp on the basic Wordpress functions listed at the Wordpress codex. I’d say strong skills in HTML /CSS will take you farther there… However, if you’re talking about building Wordpress themes commercially, or for a site like TF, that’s a different story. You need to have a solid grasp on everything from HTML /CSS to PHP .
