I have thought in using GWT for fix this, but I am a little bit lost before go further I would need some advice about which is the best technology or approach for doing this

Any advice?

Isaac

GWT will not ensure it 'looks' the same on all OS+Browser combinations. It only guarantees to abstract all the compatibility headache away from the developer.
I will also cross post this to the HTML/CSS forums. That way you can get better advise.

GWT will let you achieve the behavior, not the looks. I will defer to others on the look part for suggestions on recommended approaches

Ok then what you mean is that with GWT I can make it work the same in any browser bot for the looks I should use CSS and all that stuff?

Then It is safe learn GWT and code it ?

GWT shields you from worrying too much about cross-browser incompatibilities. If you stick to built-in widgets and composites, your applications will work similarly on the most recent versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. (Opera, too, most of the time.)

yes of course, but as I am in a "hurry" with this project ....is it the right technology ? Or should I read about another ones? Will I achieve cross browsing behaviour using html 5 and CSS3?

Am I missing something before start?
