Yes, that's definitely something else that I'm checking out: Several
languages have abstracted ui widgets and interactions in platform
independent ways: Java, Smalltalk, Python and tcl/tk come to mind. I can
imagine using one of these either directly, or more likely, basing an XML
language on a model that one of these languages have developed. For
example, a piece of XML that uses the Java-style interaction model could
<BasicWidget id="1" x="100" y="100" height="50" width="50"
