[TYPO3] strange HTMLArea transformation

I have some very strange behavior with HTMLArea.
Suddenly it seems to transform prices this way:

$26.50 ---> .50
$250   ---> 0
$2,500 ---> ,500

ie. '$' strips the first three characters.

Only when I pre-pend with '\' does it behave normally:

\$250 ---> $250
\$2,500 --> $2,500

I copied and pasted some Chinese characters into the editor but I don't 
think that would make any permanent changes.

But I must have done something.

Also there is a second problem not with HTMLarea though:

'&' in drop down navigation menus are not transformed into '&'

Do you know what change I made?
