Ok. Is there something remarkable about mouse usage other than click-and-drag

Good point. I will trim some key binding mentions.

Previous suggestions which were made:

* Mention help features earlier

  I now mention the manual close to the beginning, and function documentation
  right after the section on editing commands.

* Emphasize Emacs as a coding environment

  There are now screenshots of GDB, compile, grep, and shell, and further
  information about what programming major modes can do.

with this soon.
