input.val() interprets null as 'null' in IE7

Reported by: zirouk Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.3.2

Blocked by: Blocking:

If I set the value of an input box with .val(null), IE7 inserts the string 'null' into the input. Firefox 3 correctly sets the input to ''.

1.2.1 correctly set the value to '' in both ie7 and ffx3 when using .val(null)

I will attach a html file containing a small demo and hotswap 1.2.1 and 1.3.1.

core.js Line 389 change to:

if ( value === null || value === undefined ) {

Again, Trac butchered it, I'm sure you're smart enough to work it out.
