I'm using the format-number()-function and I wonderd if I could do this piece of code without the variable. What I mean is, inserting the "><xsl:value-of select="."/>" directly into the function. Is that somehow possible.

The first argument can be any XPath expression, not just a variable expression:

<xsl:value-of select="format-number(.,'#,##0.00')"/>

I've added a significant zero before the decimal which is a practice in my own formatting of numbers.

Since I don't know any XML-Schema forum:
Or does anyone know an xml-schema forum to post this question - xmlschema-dev

I hope this helps.
