<p>The author addresses how to separate components in an interactive system, illustrating and comparing approaches to separation. He then describes how to achieve control among these components. He presents the concept of two communication levels to support separation. The author covers the distinction between dialogue and semantics, runtime architecture, the choice of interaction style, dialogue control, communication issues to consider when deciding component separation, and the use of object-oriented programming.</p>
