[Bug 1279] New: [XPath] String representation of negative zero


           Summary: [XPath] String representation of negative zero
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Last Call drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XPath
        AssignedTo: chamberl@almaden.ibm.com
        ReportedBy: mike@saxonica.com
         QAContact: public-qt-comments@w3.org

string($x) where $x is negative zero returns "0" in XPath 1.0, "-0" in XPath 2.0.

This should either be changed to make it backwards compatible, or the change
should be added to the backwards compatibility appendix.
