Using 'string.ljust' to try and hold a fixed width.......

I use code like the following to retrieve fields from a form:
recd = 
The intent is to finish by assigning the list to a string that I would
write to disk: recstr = string.join(recd,'')
The spaces expected are 'NOT' being provided with 'string.ljust'....
If I simply print the field immediately as in:
print string.ljust(form.getfirst("lname",' '),15)
they are not present; they are not present when assigned to the list,
and, of course, they are not present in the final string.
Is there a way to do this....so I can have spaces 'held' in the
object I want to write to the file ??
