In http://robotics.stackexchange.com/questions my question (Which is easier/cheaper: Hbridge vs ESC for controlling a motor?) contains a "$" in a quoted section of the question. Originally I had a second "$" in a second quoted section of the same question.
However when I did this the second $ seemed to trigger a style that made the text italic and lost spacing between words. I took out the second "$" and instead emphasized it with the word "dollars" which solved the immediate problem.
However, in the listing of the question, (not the question itself) the same thing happens after the first "$". The summary shows the text without spaces between words and in italic.
Seems like a bug.
Below is a verbatim copy/paste of the original issue (two dollar signs):
I was able to find a small ESC for about $12 off of ebay. If you were designing a robot, would you see that and think?
$12 bucks for an ESC that connects to simple pulse-wave interface - sign me up!
Or would you think:
$12 just to control a motor? I could throw together an H-bridge for $0.50 and be done with it.
My robot in particular actually has two motors and therefor $24 to control the two of them. But the interface is really easy (plus has the added advantage of being R/C vs computer controlled with a simple change of connectors.
Which way would you go?
