something like this:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl=""; 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')"/>


If executed with saxon7 produces what I would expect which is

$ saxon7 fn.xsl fn.xsl

: 123,456,789.120
: 123'456'789.120

However saxon7 is mainly an xslt2 implementation and this is an XSLT1
question but saxon6 produces

$ saxon fn.xsl fn.xsl

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

which is odd, but actually it looks like it isn't saxon bug really, that
was with instant saxon on windows (ie using Microsoft's JVM) 
saxon6 using sun's JVM produces the same as saxon7:

$ saxon fn.xsl fn.xsl

: 123,456,789.120
: 123'456'789.120
