In C#, I'd like to convert some numbers to strings in a standard format, but preferably in a simple way, such as if you were going to output them rather than store them in string variables, a la:
Console.WriteLine ("{0:F2}", num);
rather than use a bunch or string methods to make them all the same number of significant digits. Isn't there any way to do this?

static void Main(string[] args)
			Console.Write(String.Format("{0:0.##}", 123.45698));
			Console.Write(String.Format("{0:0.#}", 123.45698));
			Console.Write(String.Format("{0:0.###}", 123.45698));


It takes one line (four if you make a method to do it). What are you trying to do?
