Hi, Fei Min:

I think there's a FrameMaker plug-in or script that adds the ability
you want. Try searching Google and the various fora for variations on
see also plugin, FrameMaker plug-ins, etc.

I'm surprised that nobody's mentioned it by name, yet. Perhaps
re-titling your subject to something like "FrameMaker see-also TOC
enhancement needed," you'd get more focused responses.
