So name the menu item this: "Emacs Guided Tour (web page)".

Or, as I mentioned months ago[1], you could ship the tour .odp and .pdf files
with Emacs like XEmacs does[2], then ask the OS to launch them in whatever it
thinks is the appropriate viewer.  I like that idea better, since I like the
slideshow version of the tour[3] much more than the webpage version.  (Though
maybe I only like it more because I am already a non-newbie Emacs user.  Do you
agree that that's probably why I like it more?)
