[xsl] bizzare number problem

I have some XML like so:

<enrties>
        <entry number="20.35">
        <entry number="50.95">
        <entry number="20.02">
        <entry number="1.00">
        <entry number="5.22">
</enrties>

I am trying to process those numbers with a template.
If I try to do:

<xsl:for-each select = "//entry">
        <xsl:value-of select="@number"/><br />
</xsl:for-each>

as you would expect, I get:
20.35
50.95
20.02
1.00
5.22


If however, I do:

<xsl:for-each select = "//entry">
        <xsl:variable name="currentNumber" select="@number"/>
        <xsl:value-of select="$currentNumber"/>
</xsl:for-each>

I get:
- - ./,),(-*,(
50.95
20.02
1.00
5.22

It seems to completely mess up the first entry every time!
Anyone ever had this before???


thanks
