We currently use dollar signs as delimiters, which means that if we want to use real dollar signs, we have to escape them. Code Review and Electrical Engineering use escaped dollar signs as delimiters. Should we do this as well?
Code Review discussion here.
Sorry it took me so long to look this up. I should have been more aggressive when I first realized that we were doing it the other way.
$ dollar sign delimiter $ \$ escaped dollar sign delimiter \$
$ dollar sign delimiter $
\$ escaped dollar sign delimiter \$
I can see at least one question where it looks like the author wrote out "dollar sign" because it was not obvious how to get the symbol to output properly.
