To do so, you would define an entity in docbook/literals.ent,
like all others you see there. Something like,

A wildcard can be used instead of listing the files individually.
Beware of editor working files, backup files, etc., that would be
included with a broad file-matching glob of <literal>*</literal>
even though that would be easiest.

Then, in OrderProfile, you can write simply &GLOB-NOTE; , and it
can be reused on other places too.

Also, for extra bonus -- this note about globbing is a relatively
important piece of information and as such it deserves a place
directly in description or notes section (in this case
I think NOTES is best).

And it also helps keep our examples clean and straight to the point --
the policy I've been trying to maintain is that examples should not
tell a person anything new -- all information should be in 
description and/or notes section, and examples should just show
hands-on what was already explained there.

So in the end that would be:

__NAME__ notes

Many thanks,
