somethig like this:
sprintf("Experience: [%-7d]", GET_EXP(ch));

the %-7d will hold 7 places for the number, so as the number increases, 
the number of spaces at the beginning of the number will go down.

I know it's not the best explanation, but if you give it a try, you will 
see that it will do what you want.
