If memory serves you can set it to (in Rev) quote&quote, which gives you 
"" which is different from empty in the Win registry (but of course is 
synonymous with empty in Rev).

It's been a long time since I needed to do that, so test it before 
trusting it of course.

If that's not it let me know and I'll see if I can dig up what I was 
working on back then....
