i'm 95% done.  the only problem i'm having is getting the "body_text" on the
first line:

"location" - "publish_date" -

how do i get it to look like:
"location" - "publish_date" - "body_text"

Not quite.

The linefeed  and the space used for indentation on the next line
will appear in the output and produce a visible space in the browser.
The quotes will also appear in the output.
You should use xsl:text here (see below)

 > 	<xsl:value-of select="publish_date"/>" - "</p>
The </p> end tag will end the block, i.e. you are getting
a new line in the browser.

     <xsl:if test="string-length(location)&gt;0">
       <b><xsl:value-of select="location"/></b>
       <xsl:value-of select="publish_date"/>
     <xsl:if test="string-length(/gapinc/body_text)&gt;0">
       <xsl:apply-templates select="/gapinc/body_text"/>
