That's what it does. Right now it's not centered and there is no blank
line after it. But I think it will look better if we make it, will look
like a title in the tutorial and will work in the splash screen. I think
Thien can take care of this change modifing the code to grab the phrase
in the _center_ (may vary from file to file) of the first line.

I am checking with the translators if those already commited are well
written. I will commit this change in the admin/FOR-RELEASE if no one

+ ** Check the Emacs Tutorial.
+ The first line of every tutorial must be "Emacs Tutorial" in the
+ repective language. It is used as a title in the tutorial and also used
+ in the splash screen. After each file name, on the same line or the
+ following line, come the names of the people who have checked it.
