formatting numbers in xsl
Mike wrote

  However, the JDK 1.1 spec for DecimalFormat is very woolly, so anything
  goes, really.

so probably a safer way to get ' rather than , for the separator is to
accept the default format but translate it ie the third line in the
result below:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">

<xsl:output method="text"/>

<xsl:decimal-format name="foo"
 grouping-separator="'" digit="#" zero-digit="0" decimal-separator="."/>

<xsl:template match="/">
: <xsl:value-of select="format-number(123456789.12,'###,###.000')"/>
: <xsl:value-of select="format-number(123456789.12,&quot;###'###.000&quot;,'foo')"/>
: <xsl:value-of select="translate(format-number(123456789.12,'###,###.000'),',',&quot;'&quot;)"/>


$ saxon fn.xsl fn.xsl

: 123,456,789.120
: 123456789###.000
: 123'456'789.120
