As it does here, and I found this in the Documentation:


Type: property

set the checkmark of menuItem to {true | false}

See Also: menuItem Keyword

Introduced: 1.0

Platforms: Desktop, Server, Web and Mobile

Supported Operating Systems:

Has no effect and is included in LiveCode for compatibility with 
imported HyperCard stacks.

Which is all jolly well and good; but it would be more helpful if a note 
to the
effect that 'hilite' was the LC equivalent.
