besides, it is easy to learn and most will agree that the 80/20 rule applies. 80% of the effects can be achieved from using 20% of the features =)

p/s: the next best thing is to get some teacher/student to purchase Adobe CS web Premium 4. Heard tt it is offered at $99 for NIE. (definitely a steal)
Will look in it.
Might do a "Capt Jack Sparrow" if needed.
