The way our company chose to create human-readable XML is to serialize
strings instead of doubles or floats. We used a stringstream with
std::setprecision to get a certain number of decimal places. The number
has a chance of being slightly different after de-serialization and pulling
it out of the stringstream, just like the old serialization method. This
is okay for us, as we need human-readable XML more than exact round

Hope this helps.
