passing Number(0) to html fails.

From the jquery-en mailing.
When I call html(5) it will set the innerHtml of my element(s) to "5". However, zero seems to work differently. When I call html(0), it removes the contents of my element(s) and does not append anything. I had hoped after a call to html(0), that html() would return "0".

Is this the expected behavior, or is this a bug?

Thanks, Lowell

I tracked it down to the clean function. On line 946 there is if(!elem), which fails with zero. Quick patch:
if(!elem && elem !== 0)

would 'if (elem == undefined)' be a better fix?

Is it also be worth changing the !elem in trigger() for the sake of consistency, even if elem in trigger will never === 0
