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.
