Yes (pretty much) and no.

Yes to what you're seeing in Kindle Previewer and No to what you are seeing in Kindle for PC. Viewing in the latter is only a test for what the book will look like in that app. The Kindle Preview is a very good, but not perfect, proofing app for the way the book will render on Kindle devices.

Note that Kindle Previewer, currently v2.4, has a Device menu to select the class of device it is to replicate. You should preview your book in both the "Kindle Fire" mode and "Kindle" mode. The latter approximating the rendering on the 6" B&W eInk Kindles. It would also be advisable to checkout the book in the iPad and iPhone modes as these preview the rendering of the Kindle app for those devices.
