The function HelpBaseMode was introduced in SE 4.69f1 before that a
small utility was used to launch the BaseMode manual as there was no way
to do it from StrongED itself.

To fix, replace the call to BaseHelp with the HelpBaseMode function. You
might want to compare the BaseMode ModeFile in StrED_cfg with the one in
StrongED 4.70a12 (using SideDiff) to see what other differences there

Easy, interactive help works on menu items too. :-)
