I'm no XML expert, and I haven't inspected the XML spec in any detail, but
from what I read in Michael Kay's XSLT book it appears to me that I should
be able to use for example <xsl:decimal-format ... digit-zero="#x0E50" ...>,
where x0E50 is the Unicode character for "Thai Digit Zero", and expect the
resulting output to be rendered in Thai digits.  True, that isn't supported
by Java's DecimalFormat class; is there some other way in Java of persuading
DecimalFormat to produce Thai digits?

It strikes me that the text describing the zero-digit attribute of 
the xsl:decimal-format element in the XSLT 1.0 spec may be wrong. 
What is stated in Section 12.3 is:

zero-digit specifies the character used as the digit zero; the 
default value is the digit zero (0)

The issues with this:

1. Why can we specify 0 but not 1 through 9?

2. Changing the character used for 0 is not allowed by the 
java.text.DecimalFormat class after which format-number and 
xsl:decimal-format is modeled. ()
