I see. I would then suggest the use of the Scrapbook. Set a typical 
header and send it to Scrapbook. Pick it from there when you need it. 
All that is left is editing this text.

This trick doesn't replace a good implementation of a "reverse type" 
feature where one could set a background to any text without the need 
for an extra text frame. Such a background would follow the text as 
it flows.
