.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.

Please follow the  bug reporting guidlines and use  jsFiddle when providing test cases and demonstrations instead of pasting the code in the ticket.
