Do you think it makes sense to add xsl functions to the JXPath context 
used by the jpath logic sheet, so that you can call them directly from 
jpath, e.g <jpath:value-of select ="format-number(/totalCost, 
'###,###.##')"/> ?

I think the original author was trying to make a direct comparison to 
the M$ Petshop example, which has html in the DB. I think we can and 
should remove that. IIRC IBatis JPetstore version 1

has the proper design.
