InputForm Query

I am using MathScript to post expression evaluated by the kernel into
web pages. When the expressions are algebraically complex, I wrap the
output from the kernel with InputForm. For example(a simple case),

In[1]:=InputForm[1 + 7/13.*x^2]

1 + 0.5384615384615385*x^2

The question for the Mathgroup is whether there is a simple way to
automatically truncate the numeric number(s) in the expression so that
all numerical quantities are displayed with a specified number of
digits. When the output from the kernel is purely numerical, then it is
a simple matter to use NumberForm.
Thanks much,
