B transcluded into A

In computer science, transclusion is the inclusion of part of a document into another document by reference.

For example, a resource called Agricultural policy by country might include sections for The United States, Mexico and India. Transclusion takes parts of documents and distributes them to other contexts. For example:

POLICY/Country Agriculture Transportation Manufacturing Health
United States Agricultural policy in the United States Us-trans Us-mfg Us-Health
Mexico Mex-ag Mex-trans Mex-mfg Mex-Health
India Ind-ag Ind-trans Ind-mfg Healthcare in India

The term was coined by hypertext pioneer Ted Nelson in 1982.
