I've been experimenting with user interface elements, in this case a slider, with this program:

When I execute the for loop in a terminal, the numbers correctly align on the decimal point whereas in the Web VPython output area they do not. I just want to make sure that it's the with of the font characters causing this and not something else.

Joe, for what it's worth (essentially nothing), I don't know how to make the decimal points align, using the print statement.

That's okay. I'm reasonably sure it's the width of the font characters because when I run that loop in command line Python the decimals line up but I have a different font. Just thought I'd ask.
