So in Minecraft, the section sign (§) can be useful to make colors in text and so on. However, I can't seem to type it. I've tried pasting the character in using Ctrl-V as well as middle mouse. I've even tried using
xdotool type "§", but it just doesn't register, even though using
xdotool type "foobar" will work. Is Minecraft perhaps just filtering out that character or something on Linux?
Update: I found out that the Minecraft client doesn't accept the § symbol for generating color/style sequences in text. The use of those sequences is for the server only. However, I did find out that in recent versions that if you want to change the color of text on a sign, you just apply dye to it, which is what I wanted to use the sequences for anyways.
