Indeed I have. OE does "function" initially, it takes a very long time 
to startup, and functionality is limited. I use OE to check hotmail, and 
while I was able to enter in my account information it was never able to 
connect to the internet and download the mail. IE6, however, functions 
almost flawlessly (except for the fact I was going to use it for 
Turbotax' website, but then it required Adobe Acrobat 6, and after that 
installed semi-flawlessly, things didn't work right). Long story short 
it's been a very exciting process getting this stuff working; I just 
need more time to refine the configuration a bit I think and try more 
skus to get this sorted out.

This was actually resolved by just going through and installing the font 
packs. I'm sure it was only one of the fonts, but I was not paying 
attention the first time through. When I have more time to invest 
testing this (instead of testing at my job) I will document what is 
needed for this particular application in Wine and make the information 
available on the particular application forums for the next person.
