Hi Jon
   The last time I spend time and effort in checking one of your tools
(the Illinois Accessible Web Publishing Wizard for Microsoft Office) I
was very disappointed when the final version came out that it was a
licensed product.  I had assumed that the software would be freely
available, and ideally open source.  I feel that you (your
organisation, not you personnally) got my effort under false
pretences.
   SO, to avoid possible confusion  this time, can you clarify the
licesing position for this software.

Thanks

Brian Kelly
