On the product view page there are two types of product descriptions. 

1. Short Description - this is the description marked as Quick Overview
2. Product Description- this is the description below the product image

I want to be able to change the “Product Description” title to “Product Features.” Right now the title is orange color in the standard magnento release.

Thanks for your help.

This is In app\design\frontend\default\default\template\catalogue\product\view.phtml.
Line 153:  <h4><?=$this->__('Quick Overview')?></h4>
Line 160:  <h4><?=$this->__('Product Description')?></h4>

Of course you should copy the file into your templates and change it there.

I found the file here: app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/view.phtml for 1.7.0.2
Thanks for pointing in me in the right direction.
Changing the text works perfectly.

Just thought I’d update this. I’m running 1.8 and the location has changed. Go to:

app\design\frontend\base\default\template\catalog\product\view\description.phtml

Find

<h2><?php echo $this->__('Details') ?></h2>

Change the ‘Details’ part. Interestingly enough, they felt Details was more appropriate for an ecommerce site.
