I haven't heard of it working, and Publisher doesn't show up in the file type dropdown list in my StarOffice 6.0 install. It's easy to test whether it works, though. Download OpenOffice.org from www.openoffice.org or www.getopenoffice.org/download.html". I've also heard Writer and Draw's layout capabilities compared favorably to Publisher, though, so if you can get the content out of Publisher via RTF or another means, you might just well be quite a bit happier with Writer.
