Or insert just

   Item["Evaluate &Notebook", "EvaluateNotebook"],

between two of the items under Menu["E&valuation" in  That 
will put Evaluate Notebook roughly where you would find it in 5.2, and 
it will still keep Help as the right-most, hence easy-to-find, entry 
along the menu bar.

Incidentally, I tried editing directly in Mathematica, but 
that caused an error (even after I first deleted the internal cache 
information that I saw at the bottom of the file).  I wonder if this was 
caused by spurious characters when I copied directly from David Bailey's 
e-mail message into the window in Mathematica.
