Look if it can be done by CSS. If not, hack the theme code 
(MoinMoin/theme/classic.py) or rather derive from the classic theme 
class (like starshine does also).

HTML macro, but be aware this is dangerous.

There is also a simple method to get some static custom html in at some 
predefined places. Look on HelpOnConfiguration, the setting is called 
html_header1/2 and html_footer1/2 (or similar).

Well, working with html is not quite the wiki way. ;)
