on anything remotely recent the normlise() function is better to use as it doesn't waste memory bandwidth and texture cache to sample a texture, plus the ALUs are now alot faster than they used to be.

It's recommended by both NV and ATI to use the function rather than a cubemap (see performance pdfs in the Forum FAQ)
