Bundles the optional original text of a value with an optional in-memory form of it.

ILNode objects that do not represent literals will have a Value property that returns NoValue.Value. Also, the TextValue and TypeMarker for a value may not be known, in which case they will return an empty string and null, respectively. It could also be that the ISerializedLiteral.TextValue is known but the value it represents is not known, in which case the Value may be a copy of the TextValue.

If this object represents a literal, Value should never be NoValue.Value, and it should not be null unless null is the actual value of the literal.

In all, a literal may have the the following valid combinations of properties:

Caution: TextValue is UString and an "empty" UString is "equal" to a "null" UString since the list of characters is the same. Do not compare UString with null; instead, use UString.IsNull.
