Hello Aurélien,
I'm a digikam manual writer with Gilles and do here and there small 
improvements in the user interface. I also worked on the kipi-plugin manuals. 
Since some time ago I try to come up with a better imagesgallery export 
rendering, in particular on the CSS part. So far I've achieved a floating 
design (instead of fixed columns) and a soft drop-shadow 
It works in konqueror and firefox. Must still be verified with W3C, Safari 
and IE6.

I fully agree with the idea of using CSS templates for different styles. They 
could be easily enhanced like the digiKam themes for example.
