How do I convert a list of bits, say {0, 1, 1, 0, 0}, to a corresponding
character string, "01100"?  Just for bits, the expression

  StringJoin[lis /. {0 -> "0", 1 -> "1"}]

does what I want.  But, more generally, how do I do the same with
arbitrary digits?  The expression similar to the above but for all 9
digits 0, 1, 2, ..., 9 seems overly long.  Is there an easier way?

(I have the unpleasant feeling that I've asked this before.  It's
apparently just one of those things that I cannot readily find in Help.)
