Before the advent of scalable icons, it was possible to graphic images in a help file. In particular, cshlpcmp is able to interpret .mbm files and embed them in the resulting .hlp file. It is common to use the app's own bmp files and compile them using bmconv to mbm files, which are then included in the help file

With scalable icons this is no longer possible. there are no bmp files to compile anymore, and mifconv can only create mbm's from bmp's afaik.

What is the recommended way of creating mbm files?
