If I understand what you are asking correctly, the best practice in your
module functions would be to call theme('x_y') where 'x' is your module name
and 'y' is something descriptive (likely the same name as your function
which is invoking it).  Then implement a theme_x_y() function which
generates the output in a variable like $output and then returns $output.
