Patch mostly applied, thanks

I did not apply the NullPointerException code. At the moment, the rest of
the Strings class is being coded to return null if passed in null. This
needs to be discussed if Numbers is to be different (and may need guards in
the createFloat etc. methods)

I haven't changed the test, so the test fails at present.
