Division by Zero (Error Handling)

When dividing (elementwise) two matrices of similar dimension (e.g., A/B), zero-elements in B cause a "division by zero" error message. In such a case, regardless of numerator, I want the pair's ratio to be zero. Without building a module that defines modified matrix division, how can I establish that whenever (throughout the notebook) division by zero occurs (regardless of numerator), that the result can be zero? Thanks. Bruce
