    One feature I like about NeoOffice is the ability to create user-defined variables (what it calls Fields) and then insert them into the text. If you were writing a contract, for example, one variable could be a name. By inserting a variable several times in a document, you can save time and effort updating the document by simply changing the variable's value and having the several instances in the text updated automatically.

    Off the top of my head, I don't believe Pages has the same exact thing. but you might be able to get similar/same functionality with merge fields.
