DataFormatString Examples

I have included DataFormatString formatting on some columns in a GridView.

These string are able to be setup by the end user but i'm having trouble finding a good list of examples i can include in my end user documentation.

Anyone know some good links ?

eg: {0:C2}, {0:N}, {0:dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm}
What the 0, C, N, etc. mean.

cheers
