Agreed. I thought the value of presenting this approach is that it is
adaptable to whatever rounding (or other) math you might require, e.g.,
use floor() or ceiling(), round to the nearest 100, etc.

And it provides a workaround until Xalan fixes the defect <sm;)ey/>

..Perform whatever rounding math you desire explicitly before passing
..value to format-number:
..  format-number( round(//value), '##')

This will work, and solve his problem, but the spec is clear that 
format-number() should do that for him.  The XSLT 2.0 spec has the gory 
details, as does the Java spec referenced in the XSLT 1.0 spec.
