<see cref="topic" />not working in Project Summary

I would like to reference some high-level topics from my Project Summary text, but <see cref="topic" /> is not creating the desired link.  Is there a trick to making this work?

TIA.

Use an HTML anchor tag and use the topic's GUID instead (<a href="html/[guid_here].htm">Some topic</a>).  You can view the target topic's source in the help file to find the ID metadata element containing the GUID (it's actually an MD5 hash in GUID format so it will remain constant).

Thanks Eric.

I also discovered that <see cref="T:Fully.Qualified.Type"> works as well.
