-====== Empty and invalid strings in ACS ====== 
-ACS strings are actually integers containing **string ids**. Any integer can be either valid (referring to a string that exists) or invalid (referring to no string). 
-Using an invalid string id will either do nothing, crash the script or crash the engine. Invalid string ids should never be used. 
-In contrast, empty ACS strings (''""''​) are valid strings of length 0. They have a valid string id. All string operations on them are guaranteed not to crash. 
-Unlike some other ACS libraries, [[string|ACSUtils string functions]] only accept valid string ids (including empty strings) and never return invalid string ids (but sometimes return empty strings).
