Thanks for the comment. format-integer combines elements of format-number and
xsl:number; format-number uses "000" for a three-digit output field, while
xsl:number uses "001". We wanted to eliminate this difference. xsl:number also
allows formats such as "999" (remember COBOL?) but their meaning is essentially
implementor-defined. So we thought it made sense to allow a three digit output
to be indicated by any sequence of digits, that is, in the format picture all
digits are interchangeable. I'll see if this can be explained more clearly.
