keyboard – How to type a section sign (§) in minecraft on Linux

So, in Minecraft, the section sign (§) can be useful for creating colors in text, and so on. However, I can not manage to type it. I tried to paste the character using Ctrl-V as well as the middle mouse. I've even tried using the xdotool "§" type, but it just does not register, even if using the xdotool "foobar" type will work. Could Minecraft be filtering this character or something under Linux?
