Almost certainly a great deal. However ...
What does not
WordPerfect 13 is unstable.
After a short while changing window focus led to the application crashing when the focus returned to the application.
What was not tested
Anything and everything that requires the application to be stable for more than a minute.
It isn't stable long enough to take a screen shot. Looks like fixme:hlink:DllCanUnloadNow may be to blame.

If WordPerfect hangs on first startup see the WordPerfect Office X3 AppDB entry for the note “Apparent Hang with only Splash Screen Displayed” for guidance on how to reveal a message box hidden behind a splash screen.
If you reveal a message box that reads:
Entrust initialization file not found: C:\Windows\Entrust.ini
then you have installed the Entrust Security Integration option. If you do not know what this is you almost certainly do not want it.
Run the WordPerfect Office install program again and modify the installation so Entrust Security Integration is set to “don't install” and try again. If this does not work, read the WordPerfect Office X3 HowTo – Installation Guidelines and reinstall.
By default, WordPerfect uses 'enhanced' (Explorer-like) file dialogues. These do not work under Wine. WordPerfect will probably crash opening an existing document or saving a new document unless the enhanced dialogues are disabled first.
Start WordPerfect. Select Settings... under the Tools menu. Select Files... Uncheck the "Use enhanced file dialogs" box. Click OK. Click Close.
