§ section Unicode 00A7

Even though it looks funny, the section sign – § – is most often encountered in legal documents and sometimes in academia. To denote the plural, specifically a sequence of sections, two section signs are used. Within the section sign's area of use, this is so highly conventional that most typefaces place two section signs very closely together, with little to no space beween characters – e.g.: §§10–12.

As an aside, this can be exploited in Minima to make patterns.
