      The bug

      Item tooltips still use the § character for formatting instead of text components. This causes the tooltips to render incorrectly when a right-to-left language is selected.

      How to reproduce

      1. Switch your language to any right-to-left language (eg, Arabic). Any language which displays with the parentheses on the right rather than the left in the language list should have this issue.
      2. Grab a writable book.
      3. Sign the book with any title.
        → Note that while signing, §s are visible.
      4. Hover over the signed book in your inventory.
        → Note that the §s are visible and coloration does not happen.
