..In relation to XPath, what would the answer be to the following operation:
..5.46 mod 2.6
..Should it be
..a) 1 (implying the numbers are rounded to nearest integer, then 'mod'ed)
..b) 0.26 (implying some sort of floating point mod operation)

The XPath spec says that mod is exactly equivalent to the Java % operator.  
If this also means it is the same a the C % operator (I don't have a Java 
spec handy), C only applies % to integers, suggesting that XSLT would 
round input values to integers before applying the mod operation.
