    Yes, If you use the HTML standards (don't forget to specify your
    doctype IE on windows changes it's behaviour depending on the doctype
    you specify) - try and be compatible with XHTML 1.1 STRICT or HTMl
    4.01 STRICT and run all your pages through an HTML validator (see
    [url]www.w3.org[/url]) then they will usually render the same on both platforms -
    my site will render identically in all browsers on Windows and on mac
    except for opera which doesn't put bullet points on unordered lists,
    but that's the only difference.
