I was under the impression that I could use a shortref entity just 
as I would  any other text entity.  I could place it in the text 
block at the position I want and it would be "expanded" or used at
when the text is processed.  I used to be able to do this, but a lot
has changed since then (not the least of which is the use of SUBDOCs!).
The entity must be defined since Jade doesn't fail with an undefined
entity.  It would be useful, but I'm able to work around it for now
(thanks to previous postings about adding spaces).
