1. A curious question. What do you mean by "are both forms right?",  
is the HB wrong?
2. I think that the dagesh preceded the NIYKUD. An unusual dagesh  
means, in my opinion, that the NAKDAN (or NAKDANIYM) decided to  
override an existing reading tradition.
2. A dagesh is expected after a QUBUC in a letter not marked by a Schwa.
3. Dr. SHAUL BARQALIY in his, widely used, "the complete table of names"
דר שאול ברקלי: לוח השמות השלם
brings both forms.
4. The Hebrew "Academy" has no authority to dictate right and wrong  
(even though they pretend to have it, speaking grandiosely about  
their "decisions" in this or that matter). Being a rabbinical  
institution they go out, anyway, from the assumption that the NIYKUD  
was handed down to Moses on mount Sinai.
