Overriding Theme Files in Modules

I came upon this problem whilst trying to deal with a validation error in the Newsletter module - the file SubscribeSubmission contains a '<br >' (note the extra space) that is causing XML validation issues with the theme layouts I am using.

If there a way a theme can cleanly override a module, or do I have to create another module that decorates the appropriate method and change the path of the file being used as a template?

Apologies if I have missed something obvious

A theme template should override a module template of the same name.
