[xsl] XPath 3.0 Functions and Operators: format-number() question

 One of the format-number() examples in the F&O 3.0 Recommendation is this:

      format-number(12.34, '0.000e00')


I am trying to evaluate this example in Oxygen XPath/XQuery Builder
view, which uses Saxon (  behind the scenes.

I get this error:

"XPath failed due to: format-number picture: Passive character must
not appear between active characters in a sub-picture"

Who is right: the specification, or Saxon?

What would be the closest to this example that will not cause any errors?

Truly great madness cannot be achieved without significant intelligence.
To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk
Never fight an inanimate object
To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the
biggest mistake of all
Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.
You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what
you're doing is work or play
To achieve the impossible dream, try going to sleep.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
