Report Viewer - "nil" not rendering consistently/correctly
When outputting arrays of numbers and booleans that contain "nil" entries in R, they are not converted to NULL for use in Kepler/ptII

The PDF seems to render "nil" as "nil" whereas the AWT rendering (from Apache-FOP) sometimes shows a huge integer instead. I believe it's something to do with how the AWT is using components- maybe the column (int) is confused by this? Also seeing some "NaN" entries in a different column (double)

This is also happening for DoubleTokens - but they show as NaN rather than nil - which I believe is acceptable.
BooleanTokens loose their nil-ness and become false which may be misleading in some situations - but typically it corresponds to rows where there are null data and you can infer that false is inconclusive. At any rate, we're stuck with that.
