It's true there is a difference in how colors are interpreted between the two.
A common way to deal with this would be to use web-safe colors, (but nobody does that anymore, hardly).
I'd advise determining your audiences browser preference (windows), and design your colors on that. You can still do your coding on the Mac.

The best way is to embed a colour profile. sRGB should do the trick. See your image software for doing this.
If you want what you're seeing to approximate what a windows viewer might be seeing, you need to set your screen to something similar... gamma 2.2 , or use the sRGB colour profile. Access these via... (er, writing on windows here... can't remember the exact name).. system preferences: the one that gives you thousands or millions of colours also gives a way of setting the gamma... I think u can do it thru the ColorSync utility as well.

I'm not at all familiar with Macs, but have been thinking about the switch. Beyond color differences (discussed here), are there other major difficulties for website developers in using a Mac as a home base?
