I have found several minor but annoying bugs in floating point formatting with the % operator.

  1. Does not accept the %9.f format string with no digit after the period.
    (gives ValueError: unsupported format character '.' (0x2e) at index 7)

  2. For at least some input numbers, %9.3g throws an exception: TypeError: param.toExponential().toPrecision is not a function

Testcase is attached, throws exceptions as described using the latest GIT from sourceforge 10/12/2011. Test browser = Firefox 3.6.22 (Fedora 14), with and without "-d" compile option.

hmm, could you please morph these into LibTest examples, referencing the bugreport number "issue #652" in the assert message?
