Grouping separators in format-integer()
Following the resolution of W3C bug #29488, clarifications have been made to the F&O 3.1 specification of format-integer() regarding the use of grouping separators. Two main issues arise, illustrated by the following:
- The expected result for test format-integer-030 has changed:
format-integer(602347826, '#(000)000-000') now expects '602)347-826' rather than '(602)347-826' (which is currently returned by Saxon).
- The expected result of format-integer(123456789, '000,00,00') is '12345,67,89'; but Saxon returns '1,23,45,67,89'. (See test format-integer-072)
#1 Updated by Debbie Lockett about 5 years ago
- Status changed from In Progress to Resolved
- Applies to branch 9.8 added
- Fix Committed on Branch 9.7, 9.8 added
Patches committed on 9.7 and 9.8 dev branches:
In IrregularGroupFormatter: only include grouping separators at positions less than the length of the value.
In FormatInteger: the leftmost group (defined by grouping separators in the picture string) is now also considered when determining whether grouping is regular.
