Probably all these processors use a Java JDK method like
java.lang.Double(String) to parse the string and this method tolerates the
'+' sign. (Java has a unary plus operator, but +1 is not a valid number
literal, so java.lang.Double(String) actually contains the bug. But its not
really worth the time to file a bug report).
according to the XPath spec, number('+1') should return NaN, shouldn't
it?. But it seems, XT, Saxon, Xalan and OracleXSL don't agree with me.
Who is right?
