Yes, you can put check marks next to menu items as documented in
the MCL reference. You cannot, however, put check marks next to
hierarchical menus. This is due to the way that hierarchical menus
are represented in memory. The byte that normal menu items use for
the character code of the checkmark is used by hierarchical menus to
record the menu ID. See IM V-231.
