xslt 1.0 - Formatting string (Removing leading zeros)

Hi guys,

I am facing an issue with string formatting to remove leading zeros.

when
input = '000111100' or 111100
result is: 111100  - all ok!

when
input = '01111111111111111111101110'
result is: "1111111111111111100000000"
expected result is: 1111111111111111111101110

Function
<xsl:variable name="test1" select="string(number($input))" />

Open in new window

It looks like does not work for large numbers.
Please share if you have an explanation or logic function to remove leading zeros only on any size of value.

Thank You,
Darius

would then become

<xsl:variable name="test1">
            <xsl:call-template name="cut-leading-zeros">
                <xsl:with-param name="str" select="$input"></xsl:with-param>
            </xsl:call-template>
</xsl:variable>
