Hi Mike and Jeni,
With Saxon 7.5 I'm getting an error on the following:
<xsl:value-of select="concat(position(), '. ', ., '
"Type error in first argument of call to concat(): Required type is xs:string; supplied value has type xs:integer"
1. Why doesn't the XSLT processor perform an implicit cast from integer to string? This is quite natural, as any atomic type has a string representation and can be converted to string.
2. My current solution is to use
Is this the best/recommended solution?
