So Solution is to do :

Yes ... Martin already guided you accordingly ... I was trying to help you with your terminology and understanding of why Martin suggested what he did:


One caveat, though, is that that code assumes you have a single <num> element. If you have many <num> elements then the cast must happen on each one, not as above:

<xsl:variable name="nums" select="/xpath/num/xs:decimal(.)"/>

But that is not needed in your example since you only asked for one number ... I'm just trying to anticipate what problems you might experience.

I hope this is helpful.
