Haven't tested for a number of versions but getting to the point where a custom folder will be smart.

Copied /themes/default to /themes/custom

Changed Theme to custom
Tested mostly colours so far.
CSS shows correctly as /themes/custom/style.css but no changes take effect. I have cleared both WeBid cache as well as browser cache.

style.css is changed but clearly reading default still. Just to confirm, loading the custom CSS to default folder does produce the new results.

you have to change the reference to the css in the header template file

<link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' href='{SITEURL}themes/default/style.css'>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{SITEURL}themes/default/jquery.lightbox.css" media="screen">

<link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' href='{SITEURL}themes/custom/style.css'>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{SITEURL}themes/custom/jquery.lightbox.css" media="screen">

Ah ha!

Should a brief not be added to the Admin. section for theme? I see it probably already eludes to it but obviously not me ( :? ) proof.
