I think I may have figure this out, but I am still open to suggestions on the following...

<td><%# distance(lat1, lon1, DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "lat").ToString(), DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "lng"), "M") %> miles</td></tr>

the best would be to use the following:

<tr><td align=right><asp:Label id="mylabel" Text='<%myFunctionCall(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"value"))%>' runat="server" /></td></tr>

you can use any stylesheet or set the attributes of your label to match your display needs
