Kevin,
I don't consider $39.95 to be an outrageous sum for the
Accessible Web Publishing Wizard.  Microsoft Office is a
complex application and to continue to improve the features of
the Wizard resources are needed to support progamming and
technical support.  

Pricing information:

Version 1.0 is not available anymore because of the many bugs
in it.  The team working on the project only has limited
resources for technical support and it was determined that we
could no longer support version 1.0.

Program Manager
Accessible Web Publishing Wizard

P.S. There are discounts available for multiple purchases and
site licensing options available
