The §section sign is a typographic sign for referencing individually numbered sections of a document; It is often used when sections of a legal code are cited.  It is also called section symbol, section mark, double-s or Silcrow.   It can also be used with footnotes if asterisks*, daggers † and double thumbs have already been used on a given page.

In Brazil, the symbol can be used to represent numbered paragraphs of items after the first sale (Latin: caput). . . .
