How to change client side isnullorempty to if statement

Hi Experts,
I have the following code inplace in the item template of a  repeater to only display certain text if the variable is null or empty and other text if it is not.

The problem i have is that the field (SalePrice) being checked in the database no longer stores a null value, the value is a money variable and now stores either a price or 0.
If anybody can help me in making this statement check for 0 now rather than null it would be greatly appreciated.

<%# String.IsNullOrEmpty(Convert.ToString(Eval("SalePrice"))) ? "<span class='price'> " + String.Format("{0:£#.00}", Eval("Price")) + "</span><span class='pertile'>each</span><br />" :  "<spane class=offertext>" + String.Format("{0:£#.00}", Eval("SalePrice"))+ "</span><span class='pertile'>each</span><br />" %>

In Javascript you can check IsNaN(value)

Sorry I don't know javascript. Can I still do that within a repeater and still read the other values depending on the result of the check?

This answer lead me to the solution. For reference below is what i have inplace and it works a treat.
<%# CheckSale(Convert.ToDecimal(Eval("SalePrice")), Convert.ToDecimal(Eval("Price")))%>

and in the .cs file the following
   public string CheckSale(decimal SalePrice, decimal Price)
        if (SalePrice > 0)
            return "RRP " + String.Format("{0:£#.00}", Price) + "
" + "Now " + String.Format("{0:£#.00}", SalePrice) + "each";
            return " " + String.Format("{0:£#.00}", Price) + " each";
