No need for a dict, you could use instead:

s = "%03.02f%s done" % (100.0-100.0*(size/tot), "%")

or (%% is the way to embed a single %):

s = "%03.02f%% done" % (100.0-100.0*(size/tot),)

or even:

s = "%03.02f%% done" % (100.0-100.0*(size/tot))

but the new str.format() originally suggested by Dave Angel is better:

s = "{0:03.02f}% done".format(100.0-100.0*(size/tot))

(BTW, why 03.02f? The output will always have at least 4 chars, so 03
doesn't mean anything... Maybe you want {0:06.2f} (three places before the
decimal point, two after it, filled with 0's on the left)?)
