Datatypes R2 Issue 41
Data Types Issue 41: decimal significance
Regarding the text "must conform to either of the XML Schema data types decimal or double". I have always assumed that REAL values could have an arbitrary number of decimal digits (just link INT) but it doesn't say that anywhere. While xs:decimal does allow an arbitrary number of digits, implementations are allowed to say "I can't handle anything more than 18 digits". Is this a problem?
