Editing the 'See Also' field

Hi. My current docs include a link to Members and Namespace at the bottom of every 'Class' API page (under the 'See Also' heading). I would like to add links to the constructor for each class as well, but I can't see an easy way to do it (searching 'See Also' in the SHFB CHM help brings up every page).

What I have now shows:

See Also:
SomeClass Members
Some.Name.Space Namespace

I would like it to be:

See Also:
SomeClass Constructor
SomeClass Members
Some.Name.Space Namespace

Is there an easy way to edit this footer text to include this? Thanks!

The standard See Also links on the Class page are generated by the Sandcastle XSL transformations.  You'd have to modify them to add a See Also link to the constructor.  The most likely template to change is the autogenSeeAlsoLinks template in C:\Program Files (x86)\Sandcastle\Presentation\VS2005\transforms\globalTemplates.xsl.  It would be a matter of figuring out under which condition(s) to insert the link to the constructor.
