Thanks for the reply Jeff.
I'll check out the Active TCL distribution.

With tile I can't use all the normal options to create a button, but I
should use styles instead. This is fine, but making the correct Tcl
calls from Python is possibly slightly esoteric from a Python
programmers point of view.
When I went to the tile doc page on "Style", it showed just an overview
- with no actual details.
This probably isn't a problem, because there already exists a thin
Python wrapper around Tile widgets for Python. If you pass in options,
it builds the Tcl calls for you. It looks quite easy to use, and also
makes the Tcl -> Python mapping clear. It doesn't illustrate to me which
options are available though.
However, I'm not quite at that point in my code yet. :-)
When I am, you can rest assured I'll be back with questions.
All the best,
