Just a wag, and this is a dangerous thing to do, but you could try right clicking on the aperture app and use "open package contents" and root through the files to see if the default css pages are in there. Modify them and see if the changes carry through.
Note, this is dangerous and you could hose Aperture, so make sure you have a backup!
It is possible to modify existing or add new web page styles to Aperture.
The web themes are located in Aperture.app/Contents/Resourses/WebThemes. To get there go to the Applications folder highlight Aperture right click and select Show Package Contents then navigate to the WebThemes folder.
I'd suggest duplicating the Theme you want to modify and working on that leaving the original unmodified. If you are familiar with html and css the contents of the theme folder will be fairly self explanatory.
The way it worked in earlier version of Aperture 3 was that any theme folder that was in the WebThemes folder was available to use in Aperture, though you might want to restart Aperture to make sure it reads the folder after any changes.
I haven't played around with the themes for a while now so I can't say for certain that it still works this way in the latest version of Aperture. If you do do this post back your results.
PS as ypu will be mucking about in the Aperture application folder I'd strongly recommend having a backup.
Message was edited by: Frank Caggiano - actually there were a few companies that sold themes for both the web galleries and books during the early stages of Aperture. Not sure if any of them are still in business. Aperture was designed to allow this type of enhancement.

Thanks for your help, Frank. I am familiar with messing around in the package resources, so I will be careful. I didn't think of looking there. This method will work out nicely, I'm sure. And I will look around to see if there are 3rd-party themes available.

You may want to have a look at Jumpsoft's "Web Themes for Aperture". They are quite nice variations of the standard Aperture web themes. But last year it was a bit tricky to install them. Hopefully this has changed by now after the Aperture upgrades, see: Themes for Aperture
