           Summary: grouping separators in format-integer
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Working drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Functions and Operators 1.1
        AssignedTo: mike@saxonica.com

The new function format-integer attempts to extract part of the functionality
of xsl:number, for use within format-dateTime. At the same time it tries to
align where possible with format-number.

The way grouping separators are handled is inspired by format-number, but there
is an omission: to get output in the form 1,234 it is necessary to use a
picture such as 0,000 or 9,999; but this will result in the number 42 being
output as 0,042. We should therefore allow a "#" in the picture to denote a
character position that is omitted if it would otherwise be an insignificant
leading zero.
