It would certainly be nice if WRI updated NumberPadding so that Style 
expressions as well as Strings could be provided for the padding. 
Specifically if one uses a font such as Times then NumberPadding -> {" ", 
"0"} does not work properly because a single space is not the same width as 
the digits, which do all have the same width. Using 
Style["0",ShowContents->False] for padding on the right would probably work 
but is not allowed.
