LOL.  I tried spaces on either end.  They still compare as 
representing numbers.

But that other example I found.  That is a good place to 
concatenate empty.

I think the problem is that when an alternate representation of a 
number is converted to a string, the string is not always a numeral 
of the number represented.  A value in that case has sort of a 
"split personality".
