I had missed that, but you're absolutely correct and I agree that its
a better solution.

There was also a suggestion by Drew in the original post to mention
the Help menu as well.  Is that something we want to do?  But then,
wouldn't we also want to suggest C-h C-h, C-h C-i, etc.?  Maybe a
better alternative would be to add the Emacs Manual at the bottom,
after the link to the guided tour?  (And, but maybe that's just me, to
move all the help topics ("Emacs Tutorial", "Emacs Guided Tour") to
the top?)

Thanks,
Stefan Kangas
