Emmanuel Bourg commented on CSV-64:
-----------------------------------

This was discussed in CSV-13, the empty string is the common way to print null values. For
example see the HSQLDB doc:

http://hsqldb.org/doc/guide/texttables-chapt.html#ttc_nulls

> There should be a way to denote that a string is null rather than empty.
