Is there any way to have text in a detail component?

I'm using Revit Arch 2008, and still trying to get up to speed on this program!

Yes - model text.

 

If you don't like that, group your text with the detail component and insert the group.

Thank you for the quick reply.

Would the model text be added after the detail component is inserted? and if yes, how would I do your second proposal to group the text with my component? I do not know how this would be done since all text in the detail component is invisible when inserted.

Thanks again!

Model text is really not meant to be used as simple text inside a family.  You are better off creating a 'generic annotation' using that template found in the Annotations folder in the Imperial library, then load that newly created annotation into your detail comonent family.  In the detail component family place your annotation family as a 'symbol'.  The beaty of this method is that the text will always remain the same real world printed size as you place in the generic annotation family.
