Forcing String Length?

My question for the day is this:
Is there away to force string length? For example, my output contains a
string that must contain 10 characters but the XML source is not guaranteed
to supply that number of characters.
Is there a better, shorter way than doing a long series using
<xsl:choose>, testing string-length=10, string-length=9 etc and filling in
the appropriate number of spaces (or 0's if it's a number)
My stylesheet HUGE because I have so many places where this must be done.
It's working but I've got to find ways to trim it down.
