Aha, finally an easy one for me to answer :o.  The name of the parameter
is "scoreformat".   If while viewing the resource you choose "set
parameters", for me it is the last possible parameter on the page.  If
you set the parameter to "2f" (without the quotes) you will get 2 places
to the right of the decimal, etc.  I suppose you could maybe also choose
something like "3e" but it's never seemed that useful for my purposes.
