PaddedForm

FilledSmallSquarePaddedForm[expr, n] prints with all numbers in expr padded to leave room for a total of n digits.

FilledSmallSquarePaddedForm[expr, n, f] prints with approximate real numbers having exactly f digits to the right of the decimal point.

FilledSmallSquare By default, PaddedForm pads with spaces on the left to leave room for n digits.

FilledSmallSquarePaddedForm pads with zeros on the right in approximate real numbers.

FilledSmallSquare The length n specified in PaddedForm counts only digits, and not signs, breaks between digits, and so on.

FilledSmallSquarePaddedForm takes the same options as NumberForm, but with some defaults different.

FilledSmallSquare You can use PaddedForm to align columns of numbers.

FilledSmallSquarePaddedForm acts as a "wrapper", which affects printing, but not evaluation.

FilledSmallSquare See The Mathematica Book: Section 2.8.7.
