Yes, I think that is by far the best approach, I can't think of 
anything GUI-wise that you can't do in RunRev when you have to take 
into account Cross-Platform issues.

Also the backend code is then highly cross-platform since you are 
just using raw C/C++ which is more or less the same on all platforms. 
The only slight bug-bear is that you have to use XCode for the Mac 
whereas before you could have used CodeWarrior for all the platforms, 
now that would be a REALLY good solution. Oh well 95%c is almost as 
good as 100%!!!!

Thanks again for you help
All the Best
