 I've come across small difference in general HTML/JavaScript/CSS rendering.
For example on one site IE6 under WINE displayed everything correctly,
whereas IE6 running under Windows displayed small lines at the top of some 
linked images (from the default <a> border/background for images).

 But this is the only instance of actual rendering problems I've experienced,
so in general I think the WINE approach works well enough.
