I think format-number works well, but you have to think about it in
a different way. The format-number function is designed to render one
rational number in base 10 without scientific notation. Crucial to
your need is that it will only do one stream of leading zeroes.
Thus, you need to render three numbers (hours, minutes, seconds)
in succession, with slightly different formats for each.

The overall string would be produced by this formula, which could be
used in an xsl:value-of instruction:
The format of the decimal portion of the seconds may be adjusted to
suit taste.

If the original data is a single quantity of one time unit (hours,
minutes, seconds, even days) you just use div, mod, floor(), and
factors like 60 and 3600 as necessary.
