It depends on precisely what you mean by "on a specific line".
You probably need to

- change 'inline' to '<name of the fmtzero markup rule'
   e.g. if you have Markup('myfmt', ...); then you need
   Markup('fmtzero', '<myfmt', ...);

- change the (\s) to (\s|:) so that (:fmtzero 1,5:) and
   (:fmtzero 1.5 :) both work

But if you mean I can write 1.5 and it displays 1.5, but if
I write (:fmtzero 1.5:) it displays 1.50, then the rule needs
to be tightened. But in that case, why not just write 1.50?

Perhaps you could describe what you are doing in more detail?
