As Scott says all widgets will work in multiple supported platforms.

You can see them in action at [1] by clicking on the "demo" link on each 

There are a few demo widgets that will show updates across those 
platforms too, that is, an update on one widget instance will display on 
the other, regardless of hosting platform.

Interesting multi-user widgets include "natter" (a chat widget) and 
ShareDraw (a very simple drawing app). The demo page shows you how they 
would work if implemented in different platforms.

Or even better still, add your documenttion to a new page in the wiki 
where we can encourage others to maintain it with you.
