As much as I understand typo content element is unique entity. It does 
not matter how many times you displayed it arround your site. It is 
still unique. If you edit it from any of those pages the change will be 
visible on all pages. Anyway, it is easy to check it as I just did... 
Create two pages and insert some content element on both, edit the 
content element and check the result... Both pages show the updated 
version of the content element.
