Leading zeros for media files?

I like to take the compressed images from my mediafiles folder and copy them into a folder to sync to my iPod Photo (and iPhone).  But the numbering scheme
 
|1, |2....|9, |10...
 
means that the files sort
 
1, 2, 20, 21, 22..29, 3, 30, 31..etc.  instead of 1,2,3...30, 31, etc.
 
Would it be possible to have leading zeros inserted for the numbers?  That way, they'd sort in the proper order if viewed in the Finder or other programs.
 
|001, |002, |003...|030, |031, .... etc.
 
Thanks for a great little program.  I wouldn't do my web galleries any other way, since I discovered this a few years ago.

On my Mac OS X version, if I sort files by names, they are correctly displayed in the Finder.

In Mac OS X 10.4.10, if sorted by name, the files will indeed be sorted correctly in the Finder: l1, l2, l3, ..., l20, l21, ..., l30, l31, l32, etc. Maybe the problem is that they cannot be sorted that way by name on a iPod Photo or iPhone? I do not own either one, so I cannot check that.
