Thanks everybody for your replies.  I'll look at SBE and Seaside 2.9 as well
for further examples.

You're right.  I'd like to do more than simply left-justify:

   "%6.2f"      34.56     "space-padded right justified"
   "%-6.2f"  34.56        "space-padded left justified"
   "%02d"    05            "zero padded left justified"


Your examples though gave me a good place to start.

Many thanks
