Related object column value display

I want to display a related column value in a datatable. The id is being displayed enclosed in [ ]
How can i display the actual value of the related column in VF page? Do I have to query the data from related object and get the actual value and display or VF provide any function to obtain the data value?
See the section named "Accessing Data with a Standard Controller " on page 51 in the Visualforce developer guide.

BTW, it sounds like you are referring directly to the relationship name, i.e. {!contact.account} rather than an actual field on the related object.
