    i also tried to store all 3 fields in a variable, but i 
    can't get the variable to display - any ideas are appreciated
    <xsl:variable name="revBody"><b><xsl:value-of 
    select="location"/> -- <xsl:value-of 
    select="publish_date"/> -- </b><xsl:apply-templates 

You can reduce the unwieldy appearance of content like this by
using <xsl:text>

    <xsl:variable name="revBody"><b><xsl:value-of 
    select="location"/> -- <xsl:value-of 
    select="publish_date"/> -- </b><xsl:apply-templates 

<xsl:variable name="revBody">
<b><xsl:value-of  select="location"/>
   <xsl:text> --</xsl:text>
   <xsl:value-of select="publish_date"/>
   <xsl:text> --</xsl:text>
   <xsl:apply-templates select="/gapinc/body_text"/>

Bit more readable.

Now all the whitespace nodes are contained in the
xsl:text element, and unwanted white space from the
stylesheet doesn't appear in the output.
Quite important when using text output.
