In general, Pivot apps look the same regardless of what platform they are run on. The primary
exception to this is text, which is rendered based on platform-specific anti-aliasing settings.
So the flag will pretty much look the same on Windows as it does on the Mac.

The WTKX properties map directly to Java bean properties, so you can actually use Javadoc
as a reference for WTKX. I suggest that you read through the WTKX Primer to get a better understanding
of how WTKX and Java are related:

Hard to say without a better understanding of the requirements, but it certainly sounds like
something you could accomplish with Pivot.

Since it sounds like you are just starting development, I would recommend that you use Pivot
1.5 (vs. 1.4, the current release). Version 1.5 has not been officially released yet, but
it should be fairly soon and contains a number of improvements over 1.4. It is very easy to
build from the trunk in SVN - let me know if you have any questions about this.
