I thought that "12.3 Number Formatting" in [XSLT] and "3.5 Numbers" in [XPATH] already did a pretty good job of discouraging non-Java-based implementations. (3.5 isn't *too* onerous for C and C++ on platforms that support <ieefp.h>, but it's *really* tough to implement XPath numbers correctly in, say, Haskell.) --Joe English jenglish@xxxxxxxxxxxxx XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
