Well there is what I call "Richmond's Guarantee"; the 'guarantee' that
text looks exactly the same
wherever it is; on your Windows 7, my Xubuntu 12.10, her Macnitosh 10.6,
Uncle Fred's Android,
and so on:
Make all you buttons images.
Obviously for ASK and ANSWER dialog(ue)s this means foregoing the 'pleasure'
of Livecode's inbuilt ones and rolling one's own.
For the sake of argument;
I have been obsessed with Apple's Charcoal font ever since Mac OS 9 and
have it installed on
my main rig (Mac OS 10.6.7 inside VMware on UbuntuStduio 12.10), make
all my buttons
using this font, export them as PNG images and re-import them to use as
buttons that will
look consistent cross-platform and cross-PC.
Obviously this is somewhat time-consuming, but if you care to take a

download the thing,
you will see I am a bit of an aesthetics nut.
