The question is not silly and I have not found a satisfactory answer yet. A problem is that NumberForm does not force the specified digits to all numbers. It seems to stop working past 10^-5, as the example shows.

m = {{0., 1.}, {1., 0.1}, {2., 0.01}, {3., 0.001}, {4., 0.0001}, {5., 
    0.00001}, {6., 0.000001}, {7., 0.000001}, {8., 0.000001}, {9., 
    0.000001}, {10., 0.000001}};

m /. a_Real :> NumberForm[a, {3, 2}] // TableForm


0.00	1.00
1.00	0.10
2.00	0.01
3.00	0.00
4.00	0.00
5.00	0.00
6.00	1.00*10^(-6)
7.00	1.00*10^(-6)
8.00	1.00*10^(-6)
9.00	1.00*10^(-6)
10.00	1.00*10^(-6)
