Brainache! Yes, it's not easy, but I am nearly ready to release the
section for checking.

But some queries. 

Firstly, my 4.70a12 !StrED_cfg.UserPrefs.Modes.BaseMode.ModeFile
varies significantly from !StrongED.Defaults.Modes.BaseMode.ModeFile

Fair enough: strongED saves to !StrED_cfg

But the original uses e.g. 	
  c-Select	HelpBaseMode
  cs-Select	HelpStrongED

whereas the !StrED_cfg correspondig lines are	
 ^Select		SetTmp() Run("StrongED_Tmp:^.Tools.BaseHelp")
  ^(#8B)Select	HelpStrongED

which caused a bit of confusion! Especially 
as the file does not exist in 4.70 so it gives an error...

However - I am puzzled as to how a Help entr can be applied to a Menu
text? e.g.
	Menu		Wrap (join) lines
	Help		HBM_join
	Select		Replace(_wrap,_rwrap,,Noline)

	Menu		Unwrap (split) lines
	Help		HBM_split
	Select		Unwrap
