Summary0001006: "No outcome" rulebook outcome cannot be printed
DescriptionIt's rather easy for the "outcome of the rulebook" phrase to return no outcome (0), but if you try to print this, you get a run-time error.

I suppose this could be considered invalid code, but it's easy to do by accident, so I think it's worth handling.

The fix would be to add a special case to the the RulebookOutcomePrintingRule() I6 function -- if the argument is zero, print something special. (Probably "no outcome".)
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
The Kitchen is a room.

Instead of jumping:
	follow the visibility rules;
	say "Outcome: [outcome of the rulebook]."

! Outcome: 
! [** Programming error: tried to print (string) on something not a string **]
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves

RulebookOutcomePrintingRule now prints "(no outcome)" in this case.
