Re: [xsl] [announce] XMLSPY 2004 available, introducing MAPFORCE2004

XMLSpy must cost a ridiculously large amount, since not only does 
Altova not bother to include the price in its announcement. It 
doesn't include it on the web site, and won't even let you look at 
the price before putting it in the shopping cart. And of course, the 
shopping cart doesn't work, so you can't even see the price that way.

This is deceptive and dishonest. I don't object to people charging 
for software, but I very much object to companies trying to hide 
their pricing or charging different users different prices depending 
on what they think they can get away with.
