Page 8 of the Menu Manager tutorial says:

"The File menu contains a Quit item, and the Help menu contains Help and
About, as well as a menu divider line. We'll leave these menu items as they
are. (On Mac OS systems, the last item in the Help menu is actually
displayed as the first item in the Apple menu.)"

This behavior and the reason for it are also discussed at some length in
"About menus and the menu bar".

Now, short of creating a special "neon" text style for the docs, tailored
to each reader (which I'm starting to think I'm going to have to do.... ;-)
