Thanks for that, but I'm still seeing issues. Note that in my last email, I 
mentioned that the behavior I'm seeing is *with* the floating-point version of 
the library.

Moreover, the docs you quoted say "but only the # additional option can be 
specified," although I don't know what that means, exactly. It seems to say 
that "#" can be used, but other flags cannot (including width specifiers). 
However, later on the page, under "Notes," it says "For default version the 
width field and the "pad to left" ( symbol minus ) option will work in this 
case," suggesting that the field width and pad-to-left flags work (in the case 
of floating point conversions, which render as question marks). This suggests 
that even in the default version of the library, field width specification 
should work.

None of that explains why some *values* result in different behavior.

Note that I don't mind losing the "#" flag, but that specifying zero-padding 
and field minimum width is required, and I don't get that with even the 
floating point version of the library.
