How can I specify the number of decimal places to be displayed if the input parameter is a decimal? I tried using the XSLT format-number function, but the function expects a string.

<xsl:variable name="SQM_Cement_Production_CO2nonbio_Emission_Quantity" select="sum(/Report/Report_Detail/Sources/SQM/Cement_Production/SummationOfCO2/CO2_From_Non_Biomass_Quantity[. castable as xs:double])"/>

<xsl:value-of select="format-number($SQM_Cement_Production_CO2nonbio_Emission_Quantity, 0.0000)"/>
