      Description

      It seems to be impossible to type in the section symbol for text formatting into minecraft.

      ALT+21 or 0167 work fine in other windows apps. I cannot copy/paste the symbol either.

      (See it's working fine here, just not in minecraft)

      The minecraft language is set to English (United Kingdom)

      Certain other ANSI codes work like ALT+5 which puts a red club symbol into chat.
      I searched and couldn't find anything about this issue.

      If it helps, I'm using a coolermaster MK850 with aimpad turned off, but even a generic wireless keyboard does exactly the same thing...works everywhere except minecraft.
