Until 8.3.1, I needed to use \% in an org document in order to get the
% symbol displayed when exporting to LaTeX. I just discovered that \%
messes up the exported document, and that using % only works. I've
also experimented with \$ and $ and found the same behavior.

I've looked through the 8.3.1 changes document, but I can't find
reference to this change. Since I use special characters frequently, I
need more information about this change. Where can I find it?

% Is exported as "\%" in latex.

$ is a mess.  It's uses some heuristic to determine if it's a math snippet
or a currency symbol.

You can always use a snippet, @@latex:%@@ which is exported literally in
the backend before the colon.

Hope it helps,

Yes, that helps. Thank you.
