DEVONthink item links and multi-file documents

I am using DEVONthink more and more with marked as the former's text editing capabilities are developing. One thing I would like to do is to use DEVONthink's item links in multi-file documents. Is there a manner in which to get this to work? Example below:
<!--2 meta- Spectrum & arkivering-->
{{x-devonthink-item://420CC61D-EA6E-40FB-80B1-9A271A07E2A8}} <!--3 front- Spectrum & arkivering-->

    Do you mean actually embed the content from those links? Because just
    turning them into working links would be easy with a custom processor,
    you would just need the regex:

    /\{\{(.*?)\}\}/, '<$1>'

    Could be done with Bash (sed), ruby, python, whatever.

    But embedding the content into a larger document won't be possible.

    Thank you for the swift response. I thought of embedding so it would render as one long complete document. I shall have to think of another way to do it.
