Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-10-03 11:37:01 UTC
Tip of the day should use some of the ample space on the welcome page, instead of being in a dialog no-one ever uses.

In addition, we should maintain some website of "detailed tips", each described in some kind of subset of HTML and with inline images, and tags for the parts of MD that they apply to and which versions of MD they're know to apply to. Then we can generate some kind fo feed and the MD welcome page can pull tips from that.

We already have some tips we could use to jump-start the database:
