XSLT <xsl:decimal-format>


❮ Complete XSLT Element Reference

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.


Syntax

<xsl:decimal-format
name="name"
decimal-separator="char"
grouping-separator="char"
infinity="string"
minus-sign="char"
NaN="string"
percent="char"
per-mille="char"
zero-digit="char"
digit="char"
pattern-separator="char"/>
