Designing for Windows and Mac

Hi all,


For a custommer I'm developing a solution that should run on mac as on windows. I know the custommer uses only 1280 x 1024 screens and I want to use customised centered dialog windows.


Has anyone some kind of best practice on how to design for both platforms?


- Avoiding two scrollbars on the right

- Maximizing the window but still use some kind of popup centered windows.

- Get rid of the annoying mouse-weel / trackpad scroll that switches the records when the status bar is not hidden.

- Take in account differences in themes, taskbar is hidden or visible


I'm using a enter layout script trigger that defines wether it's a mac or pc and hope to solve all the layout issues in that script.


Any link to some good info would realy help.
