The value null, when passed to ToString, converts to the string
literal "null". I don't agree that that's a bug. This is how the
language was designed and I think it was a right choice. Other
programming languages use this approach, too. I think it is intuitive
var el = document.getElementById( arg );
console.log( el );
- will print "null" to the console, if arg is not found (resulting in
el being null). This is useful.
It is very simple, when desired, to do:-
if(s === null) s = "";
It would seem wrong for null to convert to the string "" when passed
I don't suppose you'd rather have ToString( Undefined ) to result in
