<xsl:decimal-format> Element

Declares a decimal-format, which controls the interpretation of a format pattern used by the format-number function. If there is a name attribute, the element declares a named decimal-format; otherwise, it declares the default decimal-format. The value of the name attribute is a Qualified Names. An error occurs if you declare either the default decimal-format or a decimal-format with a given name more than once (even with different import precedence), unless it is declared every time with the same value for all attributes (taking into account any default values).

For more information, see format-number Function.
