When values are typed as float or double, have the "special values" of INF and -INF. When simple types are bound to facets of INF/-INF the values do not behave as expected.
Problem appears to be around the fact that strtod (and ToFloat()) don't return the appropriate values for INF and -INF. strtod usually
returns 0.0 for both INF and -INF. ToFloat() usually returns garbage for INF
X-Smiles uses the Xerces validator, which handles these properly ie -INF < INF,
-INF < everything, everything < INF, ... what you'd expect.
Perhaps this should be handled directly in strtod and ToFloat()? or just indirectly our processing of infinity.

test case w/ inline schema
enter values in form to see validity results

since it was fresh on my mind, handling in schema validation code makes more sense as handling of NaN is special to xml schema. Though would *be nice* if moz utils could return appropriate values for +/-INF.
