This and other stuff should be well documented in the gettext
documentation, it's a good read. For this specific case something
$ info gettext.info c-format
would be useful (note that «info gettext» will bring up the glibc docs
instead). From there another tip would be using the I format directive
if one does not care much about non-GNU systems).
In any case perhaps you might want to blog about this so that other
people get aware of these things?
