Why not separate the code logic from the display logic MVC style. That makes testing, porting, and putting it online a breeze....

    How would I test, using the same testing code, a C, C++, Perl, and LISP implementation of the same design? I want to use the same testing code so I can demonstrate that I code the same functionality in different languages. (This is a personal requirement.)

    I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested

      You might want to consider producing a scriptable interface to your code base and testing via that. Implement the scriptable API in each language and Bob's your Father's brother.

      You might want take a gander at Developing a timeclock application. It's in Ruby, but I think the point comes across.
