Thanks Dimitre.

Sorry since I haven't sent to XSL List for quite some time I just replied to an XSL List email to I received and forgot to change the subject line (and last you communicated with me directly say some 10 years ago).

Anyway, I quoted the 3.0 spec as this is the first-in-time diagrammatic handle that I could find on xs:numeric. I am actually working with the 3.1 spec and my question still remains as to why xs:numeric is treated somehow differently to xs:anyAtomicType as to its "unionicity".

I think this came about in XPath DM 3.0 regarding xs:numeric as per spec


This is a standard type only in XPath 3.1 -- not in XPath 3.0.

It is an open question whether or not an XSLT 3.0 processor is obliged
to implement XPath 3.1 or not.

Maybe there will be XSLT 3.1 to incorporate that?
