How much is an authoring tool worth?

They may be right - and the interest which is shown in free and low-cost tools on Jane Hart's C4LPT site bears this out - but does this really help us to determine what a tool is actually worth? If you're a serious graphic designer, you'll pay $3K for Creative Suite; and audio and video engineers pay similar prices for their software. When I buy a toy I have modest expectations about utility and don't expect any support. In fact many toys never get used.
