I assume they're both rendered by the system's WebKit in the end, but the themed one gets run through some Ruby scripts first.

Which is "better" depends on what you're previewing. For something with basic paragraph, header, pre tags, etc. (like the output from Markdown) it's nice to have the themes. If you're doing proper web development, the "built-in" preview is probably preferable as it doesn't inject any surprises into your styles.
