That's a good question, one that has been on my periphery but hasn't had any attention. As of today, I am not aware of any conventions for platform or locale specific FXML / CSS. I wonder, embed name of FXML file or CSS file in a resource bundle and look it up?

The obvious example to me would be CSS files: an application might be identical - in the ideal case - on all platforms, but have different CSS files for each platform to handle details for those platforms. What conventions are in place for naming and distinguishing those CSS files?
