running your stylesheet with saxon8 and 6 respectively produces
$ saxon8 fnum.xml fnum.xsl Warning: at xsl:stylesheet on line 3 of file:/c:/tmp/fnum.xsl: Running an XSLT 1.0 stylesheet with an XSLT 2.0 processor Error XTDE1310: format-number() picture is zero-length Transformation failed: Run-time errors were reported
davidc@souldern /c/tmp $ saxon fnum.xml fnum.xsl
22,222.444444 2.5555555 999,999.444444 22,222.444444
unicode 108 is an l so that's the same as
which isn't a legal format string, I think.
$ xsltproc problem.xsl problem.xml XPath error : Invalid expression #.000 ^ compilation error: file problem.xsl line 5 element variable xsl:variable : could not compile select expression '#.000'
What ouput did you want?
<xsl:variable name="numberFormat" select="'#.000'" />
22222.444 2.556 999999.444 22222.444
in both systems.
<xsl:variable name="numberFormat" select="'#.000'" /> ^ ^ the inner single quotes save the day - many thanks :-)
