Help for applications developed using C# and Visual Studio .NET.

I myself only became aware of it recently, while researching possible
upgrade paths for our help development environment. I looked at this site
rather briefly, dismissing it because:
1) Some help authors (like some programmers) want to stay as far away from
the actual code as possible, and I suspected FAR would require them to get
their hands dirty.
2) Corporately, we tend to shy away from shareware. Isn't it funny how
companies will pay a thousand bucks for something but not $45?

Are any of you help authors actually using FAR as your standard HAT, in lieu
of RoboHelp or WebWorks Publisher, where your content source is FrameMaker
