.css(property, null) should work like .css(property, '')

IMO it is not great coding practice to use empty string for something which the language has built in sort of "empty value" - null. The .css() function can set string and integer values so using empty string to remove the value in both cases is a little dirty. Using null-s is cleaner IMO.

I don't see a need for this, it just adds more special cases when the caller can say what they mean. In most cases you're better off using classes anyway.
