Definition and Usage

The <xsl:decimal-format> element defines the characters and symbols to be used when converting numbers into strings, with the format-number() function.

All countries do not use the same characters for separating the decimal part from the integer part, and for grouping digits. With the <xsl:decimal-format> element you can change special characters to other symbols.

This element is a top level element.

The format-number() function can refer to the <xsl:decimal-format> element by name.
