Not quite - you'd need "%8.2f",statRound(aNum, 2) :-)
And there is a lot of scope for confusion and/or error if some
subsequent edit changes one of the two precision numbers without making
the corresponding change in the other
"%8.2f", statRound(aNum, 1) will give incorrect values with 0s at
"%8.2f", statRound(aNum, 3) will give incorrect values with the
wrong rounding method.
So although it works to use statRound, I think it's noticeably better to
have it built-in to "format".
