Hi Michael, I found what the problem is: To get the format-number function to work under xalanc++ you need to install ICU support. The instructions for doing this are at: http://xml.apache.org/xalan-c/commandline.html Look under this heading: "Enabling ICU support for the Xalan executable and/or testXSLT."
