Hmmm... not sure if this is what you are looking for but using MS Word
XP you can embedded sub documents using "Insert | Object... | Microsoft
Word Document". Then you can display it as an icon or as text box. If
you double click on the text box it allows you to edit the context.
Interestingly you can have that textbox or icon appear many times in the
main document by creating "short-cuts" to the original embedded
icon/textbox. You can create short-cuts by clicking and dragging the
original embedded icon/textbox while holding down SHIFT and CTRL.

Alternatively, did you know that in MS Word XP you can select any block
of text and create a clone of it elsewhere in the document using the
method given above? Then when you edit the original section the clones
of that section also change. This might be a better solution that the
stuff described above.
