 Hmmm, on the formatted value? That means it could potentially affect the minutes space, which wouldn't be good in most cases. I'm just going to have a new convert_date tag made that would allow one to tell it exactly what to zerofix (if applicable) ala zerofix="%H %I %e". It seems even the specifiers that remove leading zeros like %e tend to add a space - which is presumptuous. Mine would apply the zerofix to any named specifiers individually.  There's some enhancements I need done anyway that probably aren't generally useful. Thank you  Paul
