You said already the solution. Numbers may not be written with ',' in XSLT. 
If you definitely want the ',', you must wrote a stylesheet with recursive 
templates, which removes the ',' while adding this value to temporary sum.

This problem we had a few days ago on the XSLTalk-list. I gave following 

<xsl:template match="amounts">
<xsl:variable name="sum">
<xsl:apply-templates select="amount[1]"/>
<xsl:value-of select="$sum"/>

<xsl:template match="amount">
<xsl:param name="sum" select="0"/>
<xsl:apply-templates select="following-sibling::amount[1]">
<xsl:with-param name="sum" select="$sum +
<xsl:if test="not(following-sibling::amount[1])">
<xsl:value-of select="$sum + number(substring-after(.,'&#xA3;'))"/>

You must only replace the 'amount' by 'Amount' and the 
'substring-after(.,'&#xA3;')' by 'translate(.,',','')'.

Hope this helps,
