Leave the Windows version set to the default of Windows XP.
If using 64 bit Wine, you must create a pure 32 bit wineprefix with WINEARCH=win32.
Set riched20 to native (needed for correct display of some dialogs) after installing. There is no need to copy the dll, as Office 2007 installs its own versions, but the overrides must be set in winecfg in order for Wine to use them. These overrides should not be set globally unless Office is installed in a separate wineprefix.
The default bullet characters are from Wingdings. If you want them to look the same as on Windows, install that font.
Window Resizing Issues
Workarounds for bugs 23805 and 30587:
Solution 1: Run in an emulated virtual desktop. This is probably the easiest solution for most users.
Solution 2: Uncheck "Allow the window manager to control the windows" in winecfg. The downside is that Word will no longer show up in the taskbar.
Solution 3: (KDE users only) In System Settings, Window Behavior, do the following:
Select Window Rules
Click "New..." to create a new Window Rules
Enter the description
Window Class: Regular Expression: value *\b(winword.exe|excel.exe|powerpnt.exe)\b.*
