128 bits decimal
# The "decimal" data type should be used when you require a 
# high level of precision, since it can accurately store data 
# up to 28 digits after the decimal points (128-bit precision).

There's nothing in the XML Schema or XPath specifications that specifies the
precision of xs:decimal, other than a statement that at least 18 decimal
digits must be supported. I've no idea where you got 128 bits from, nor 28
