WordPress Theme Builders

Thinking about WordPress theme design. Eventually I will have to learn CSS properly and maybe PHP if I want to be a web designer/developer but in the meantime I need design software.

I currently use Artisteer to design themes. This is adequate for simple sites but it has limited flexibility. I’m looking at Headway Themes and Elegant Themes as ‘theme builders’. Elegant Themes costs $89 while Headway costs $174. Other options are highlighted at the Vandelay Design site.
