How hide "0" preceding the decimal point

On a form I have a field which is setup as "Standard", 2 decimals.  

If the result in the field is, for example, 1.53 then it is fine to display it that way.

But if the result is 0.27, for example, then I want it to appear as .27 (hiding the zero).

How can I do this?
