I multi-tasked and made an attempt at the definition of an authoring tool:

"ATAG 2.0 defines an authoring tool as any tool, components of a tool 
or collection of software components that an author can interact with 
to create, modify or construct Web content to be used by other 
people. ATAG applies to the authoring choices the authoring tool 
presents to the author and the authoring choices under the control of 
the authoring tool.

This includes creating, modifying or choosing:
Templates,
Stylesheets
Controls
Scripts or applets
Text
Non-Text elements"
