I had to display some floating point numbers to 2 decimal places yesterday. (VBScript guys, please cover your eyes and ears, I'm gonna whisper this)

JavaScript doesn't provide a method for this

I couldn't believe it either. But being a die-hard C programmer I like challenges! I only had to deal with positive numbers in the application I was writing, so take heed. Negative numbers are not supported!

Here are some examples of numbers, both raw and formatted to demonstrate. Note how they all have 2 decimal places and are rounded up to the nearest penny.
