Need to change this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/javascript/pngfix.js"></script>
to this:
<!--[if IE]><script type="text/javascript"

And then get rid of the browser sniffing thing in pngfix.js.

Agreed, or replaced with a 'welcome username' and links to more
specific editor help pages on the wiki.

Also agreed.  I tried to make the logo under "welcome to
OpenStreetMap" (formerly 30 second intro...) into a link, but I
couldn't work how.  At least I moved it to the left, so it should be
more prominent.
