*  I like the idea of removing the word "Emacs" from the beginning of the five
menu items Drew mentioned.

*  I don't like the idea of moving the tour into a submenu.  It is one of the
most important help items for newbies, perhaps more important than the manual. 
I suspect that putting the tour in a submenu will make less users click on it. 
What is the disadvantage of just leaving the Help menu long?

*  I don't like the World Wide Web.  If I were an Emacs newbie, I would not
click "Web Tour".  I would click "Tutorial" instead.  So I would miss out on the
tour.  I Is there any way for us to tell Help menu viewers that the tour
describes a much wider variety of useful features for programmers and others,
but the tutorial covers only text editing basics?  Maybe name the menu items
"Tutorial (for non-programmers only)" and "Web Tour (for everyone)"?
