Decimal validation of '12.'

Consider the schema definition of the following field

<xs:simpleType name="N14.2Type" id="CC0010">
            <xs:restriction base="xs:decimal">
                  <xs:totalDigits value="13"/>
                  <xs:fractionDigits value="2"/>
            </xs:restriction>


For an input of '12.'  XML spy v5 consider it not valid But xerces consider
it is ok,

From the W3c spec, it is mentioned that:

If the fractional part is zero, the period and following zero(es) can be
omitted. For example: -1.23, 12678967.543233, +100000.00, 210.

The question is, does it means both the period and following zeros have to
be omitted together or if just the following zeros is omitted, it is still
ok  ?

Thank you.
