1. A method for displaying textual and graphical components in a limited user interface display environment, the method comprising:

  • selecting a set of textual and graphical components for possible rendering in the limited user interface display environment, wherein the set of textual and graphical components will be rendered incorrectly as a result of a limitation of the limited user interface display environment, and wherein the set of textual and graphical components are part of a user interface that allows a user to control a progression of an application through a predefined set of states;

    identifying the limitation of the limited user interface display environment that will result in the incorrect rendering of the set of textual and graphical components;

    based on the identified limitation of the user interface display environment, determining, without user interaction, a component from the set of textual and graphical elements thatis not affected by the limitation of the limited user interface display environment the determination based on a predetermined characteristic associated with the component, wherein the predetermined characteristic includes metadata associated with the component;

    rendering the determined component from the set of textual and graphical components in the limited user interface display environment, wherein the determined component from the set of textual and graphical components is rendered correctly notwithstanding the limitation of the limited user interface display environment; and

    adjusting the size of a second component from the set of textual and graphical components in the limited user interface display environment in order to compensate for the limitation of the limited user interface display environment, wherein adjusting the size of the second component further comprises applying a scaling factor to the second component, the adjusting occurring without user interaction.
