Hi experts,

The following code is trying to remove the scientific notation. However, it fails to do so for negative values, such as -2.5e-3

How do I revised the code? Thanks
----------------------------------------------
<xsl:function name="fn:remove-scientific-notation">
        <xsl:param name="atr" />
        <xsl:choose>
            <xsl:when test="matches($atr, '^[\d\.,]*[Ee][+\-]*\d*$')">
                <xsl:value-of
                    select="format-number(number($atr), '#0.#############')">
                </xsl:value-of>
            </xsl:when>
            <xsl:otherwise>
                <xsl:value-of select="$atr"></xsl:value-of>
            </xsl:otherwise>
        </xsl:choose>
    </xsl:function>
