The XSLT 1.0 format-number function is defined by reference to the JDK
1.1 specification of the DecimalFormat class, which was actually very
poorly specified. The specification didn't attach special meaning to
currency symbols in the format picture; but subsequent versions of the
JDK specification did. It's quite likely that any Java-based XSLT
processor is behaving according to the specification of the JDK version
that you run it with, rather than JDK 1.1 as specified. In practice this
means that currency signs in the picture are best avoided.
