Hi guys
There is still a penalty, now If the number is negative the floor funciton rounds!
Sample:
$var = - 20624.50
output = -0000000020625

I can't rember if you are using xslt 1 or 2, in 1, perhaos teh easiest way would be


<xsl:choose>
<xsl:when test="$var &gt;= 0"><xsl:value-of  ....floor($var)
<xsl:otherwise>.................................ceil(....

or (as there may be edge cases with formatting negative numbers anyway perhaps


<xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="$var &gt;= 0"><xsl:value-of ....floor($var) <xsl:otherwise>-<xsl:value-of ....floor(-$var)
