------- Comment #1 from andrew.eisenberg@us.ibm.com  2006-09-07 17:22 -------
I'm not sure I completely understand you. The test case
op-numeric-dividesht2args-5 accepts two results, -1.000030518509475997 and
-1.000030518509.

We discussed and resolved this issue within the XQuery and XSL WGs in
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=3529. We decided that operations
on xs:decimal values can return fewer than 18 disgits of precision.

If an implementation returns a value with a different number of digits for some
of our test cases, then we will add additional expected results.
