bkHelp TBitBtns ignore HelpType and HelpKeyword and instead always try to launch help using HelpContext.  This doesn't work for HTML Help (.chm) help files.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Assign a .chm file to a project and link the HTMLHelpViewer unit so that it will work.
2. Create a form with a TBitBtn whose Kind property is bkHelp.
3. Set the TBitBtn's HelpType to htKeyword and assign a HelpKeyword.
4. Run the program and click the button.  It complains that the .chm is not a valid help file; it should instead launch the .chm with the selected keyword.
