only for some widgets; some native widgets are not flexible enough.

and even native widgets don't always look like XP widgets (windows uses 
a rather obscure manifest XML resource file to control the look and feel 
for a specific application).

to get better XP styling, you can use the Tile library:

or an 8.5 development version (which, afaik, includes the Tile library).
