Sergio, Tim Chase is absolutely right! What you can do here is check every  
field separately OR you can modify the format() method to automatically do  
that. In the second case, you need to create your method first and then  
assign it to the str.format method like that: str.format =  
your_format_method . Note that there are NO parenthesis. For more details,  
look at this recipe: http://code.activestate.com/recipes/92823/ . I think  
it will simplify the things for you later, as every time you will call the  
str.format method, the values will be checked automatically.
