No: it isn't exactly 'Code once' but it does come pretty near it.

Obviously one of the sticking points is to do with fonts.

My experience with cross-platform development does NOT involve
having to write for each OS. What it has involved is what one might describe
as tweaking and cleaning-up for each target platform . . .

. . . and how much tweaking and cleaning-up tends to vary with the 
nature of one's work.

However, having once been seriously fooled by a "one size fits all" 
operation, I am naturally
fairly chary when it comes to that sort of claim.
