# [NTG-context] mkiv \digits{2.0=} zero padding feature request

```Hi,
```
```
As Wolfgang has figured out, zero padding in \digits only works for trailing
(and omitted) zeroes when immediately preceded by the decimal separator.

It would be nice if this would work even if there is a number preceding, so that

\digits{3.1=}x\crlf
\digits{3.==}x\crlf
\digits{3.14}x

would align at the decimal separator when right aligned. This is useful in some
circumstances, where the number of significant digits varies between sources,
so that one needs to typset for example

\digits{3.1=}±\digits{0.5}\crlf
\digits{3.28}±\digits{0.12}

Thanks!

Benjamin
