For multiplatform developpement, an approach would be to have a  
conceptual model of user inter-face/action, i.e. no look, just feel.  
This model could then be interpreted (possibly with hints to adjust  
the look) with the tools provided by the different platform specific  
toolkits. A kind of front-end/back-end architecture. Easy to say...
