IETester IE8 renders form elements differently on XP and Win7

Not sure if it's related to this issue (probably not), but I noticed a difference with form elements between IE8 on XP and IE8 in IETester on Win7 I'm not sure if it's a bug or 'by design'...

You can go to any page that displays unstyled form elements, such as … ple-3.html

I think it's because IE8 uses Windows' rendering engine for these fields - so they look differently depending on which version of Windows IETester is running...  Since IE8 is used on XP, I can't use IETester on Win7 to really see how my site would look on XP.

I just installed IETester on my XP machine, and the site mentioned above is indeed rendered the same in IE8 and IETester IE8, so it's definitely related to Windows' version.
