I'm trying to edit this question which has the text
Digilent Atlys, $199 academic or $349
which is rendered as
Digilent Atlys, $199 academicor$349
Just without the space between "9" and "a", so it looks even more horrible than here.
How can I properly escape the dollar signs? I tried "\$" which improved stuff by printing the literal string "\$Digilent Atlys, $199 academic or $349" which is better, but still silly.
Hopefully meta won't mess up my question, but it's kinda hard to tell as the preview doesn't seem to use TeX to render.
