What does wordpress update affect?

Will a wordpress update (theme update) affect the content within the site if nothing 'special' has been modified?

In other words, if I don't make any html/css/php changes, will the content on my 'pages' and 'posts' remain consistent?

Thanks for looking!

Changes will only be made at theme level.

None of the content you added will be changed (Posts etc.).

Hi Steven..

For some reason the system isn't letting me reply directly to your response...

So whether it's a wordpress update, or just a theme update, my content (posts, etc.) will be safe?

ps... I'd love to vote up, but there's not an option for doing so.. I'll log out and then back in to see if anything changes..
