I've also tried to do this, without success. It wouldn't be so bad, 
except that I can't cut (or copy) a text frame and paste it on another 
page with its links intact. (Admittedly, this is only a sensible action 
with cut, not copy.) That means once you have text somewhere, you can't 
put it on another page without starting over with it.
