Three framemaker documents are in development with each containing a subset of common text and graphics. I need a recommended strategy how to setup the documents to pull the common text and graphics in from a common location.
Before you get to that, you need an enterprise-wide (or at least pubs-dept-wide) strategy for naming, logging, searching, change-controlling, and serving of the common assets.
There are some limitations on text insets, such being able to cross-reference or hypertext into them. Also, if they contain formatted elements (styles, headings, variables, or even specific typefaces), you need to have those formats nailed down enterprise-wide. It it's just plain .txt, it's a lot simpler.
