Default Chapter 8 page 234

What is the advantage of providing an explicit default constructor to set the data value of the StringSpreadsheetCell to "#NOVALUE" as opposed to using the compiler generated default constructor which will set the initial value to the empty string?

That's just for this example.
In my spreadsheet example, I want to make a difference between having no value and having an empty string as value, hence the "#NOVALUE" sentinel.
