html() is inconsistent in its behavior

$('span').html(1) sets the HTML content to "1", even though 1 is not a string. However, $('span').html(0) only empties the contents of the matched elements. Of course, html() is said to want a string for input, but it should at least be consistent in its behavior. I'd expect .html(0) to do about the same thing as .innerHTML = 0.
