wordnet seems to accept it as an alternative spelling (not too recent):

[20:44] C:\pywk\sovm>wn imbed -over

Overview of verb imbed

The verb imbed has 1 sense (first 1 from tagged texts)

1. implant, engraft, embed, imbed, plant -- (to fix or set securely or deeply: "Kneeling, Cobb p
lanted a sturdy knee in the small of his back,")

funny that googling define:imbed gets nothing. Nor define:embed ??
I've had a number of misses in that kind of search. I wonder if it's
temporarily broken (or maybe it hit a licensing snag with the various
online dictionaries?)
