dynamically link text between two layers/comps?

I have a phone number that shows up in two different places in my spots, with different font/size, in each. Is there a way to link the text character content, so that the second usage will grab the character content of the first? (these are both in the same comp)

Choose one of those text layers to be the "master" layer. Open both layers' text Properties. Activate an expression in the "slave" layer's Source text property, and pick-whip it to the "master" layer's Source Text property.
When you make a text change in the master, it should now show up in the slave.
