It is generally considered a best practice to not use text entities with DITA. DITA specifically provides “content referencing” (via an attribute called “conref”) for what you wish to do. This is generally referred to simply as “conref” in the DITA community.
Please look for “conref” and “reusable component” (our specific term) in the XMetaL Author Enterprise help.
