others have discussed format strings.
One final tip is to put the format string in a variable then use that
in printing/writing the output
fmt = '%10.3f\t%10.3f\t%10.3f'
print fmt % v1,v2,v3
This has the advantage that you can build the format string
dynamically by examining the data first - eg the maximum
length of an entry.
Also by using a minus sign in the format string you can
change the justification.
