This is the wrong question to ask. Because of how Wine works, you just need to know what Wine version runs Publisher 2003 the best.
If you go to the Wine website, and then onto the AppDB (application database), and search for Publisher, you'll find compatibility information. Here is the page for Publisher 2003
. It has a "bronze" rating, which means it installs and runs but has quite a few bugs, and it's been tested on various Wine versions including the current one, 1.3.6.
tl;dr: Try Wine 1.3.6 first.
