Re: "What's This?" in Describe submenu

    What is the purpose of the "What's This?" entry in the Describe submenu
    of the Help menu?  The only difference to the "Describe Key..." entry
    beneath is that the latter is bound to `describe-key-1' which is
    not defined anywhere.

A discussion in November 2002, based on noting that Windows menus have
a "What's This" feature, concluded that (present and former) Windows
users would recognize the name "What's This" and know what to do with
it.  So it would help them.

I have never been a Windows user, so I can't judge for myself.
Do those here with Windows experience agree that that menu item
will be understood by many users?
