Nope. Can't even call Java method to accomplish it.

Quick & dirty, but should work fine - even if the number is in E notation:

function format(val) {
  sign = val < 0 ? "-":"";
  rval = Math.abs(Math.round(val*100));
  str = rval.toString();
  if(rval < 10) str = "0.0"+str;
  else if(rval < 100) str = "0."+str;
  else str = str.substring(0, str.length-2)
     + "." + str.substring(str.length-2, str.length);
  return sign+str;
}
