We had that problem at one of my previous employers. We ignored it and
wrote for the in-house platform, prefacing with our intent. It eased our
writing problem but increased our customer service problem.

I am looking for examples of documentation (good or bad)
written for a multi-platform product. I am interested in whether
anyone has covered platform differences in the same document and
done it effectively. Any pointers to documents or success/horror
stories are appreciated!
