I am an author of Harmonia D gui toolkit.
See: http://harmonia.terrainformatica.com/

I know FLTK and I beleive some ideas of FLTK is there

It is different though. In particular event propagation schema.
It also has lightweight HTML engine (form layout manager,
renderer, form resource definition, etc. )

BTW: One of design goals of Harmonia was to create sort of FLTK
but in D and for D.

It would be extremely nice if someone will take care about Linux port:
