This is a PHP-only convention, and one of the reason I dislike coding in PHP. I know many people who dislike to use $ for variables. Beside the fact some poeple don't like it, this doesn't follow the established CSS conventions.

Don't forget the many shell scripting languages that use it for
variables. More particular uses (certain kinds of variables) are also
in Perl, Ruby, and some other languages (Remember BASIC?).
