[xsl] newline white space

I'm having some trouble with newline white space. I fixed this once before
but can't remember for the life of me how!

The XML looks like this:
<p>This is a para<hyphen/><lb/>

Ideally, there would not be a <hyphen/> tag, but &#x00AD;, but I couldn't
figure out how to do that either.
This is what I have in the XSLT
<xsl:template match="p">
    <fo:block  font-size="8pt"  line-height="12pt"  text-align="justify" >

<xsl:template match="lb">
<xsl:when test="preceding-sibling::*[1][name()='hyphen']">
<xsl:otherwise><fo:inline><xsl:text> </xsl:text><xsl:apply-templates /></

Treat the <lb/> as a space unless it is preceded by a <hyphen/> then remove
the hyphen and put no space between the end of the first line and the next.

The output should be
This is a paragraph.

Is it the linefeed-treatment and space-treatment properties? I can't seem
to get the right combination.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
