Well, iexplore uses a lot of unimplemented functions. Take a look at the 
recent thread "Re: IE5.5". Winword mostly works for me, but it also has 
some problems. Unfortunately, I suspect that Microsoft apps tend to use 
a lot of more obscure and undocumented features. I use very complicated 
electronic design software under Wine, along with other complex non-MS 
programs, and many of them work fine.
