Well; on Mac keyboards the top-left key has a siglum: § on it, rather
than a `; that key usually being to the left of the Z key.

Whether § should be classified seriously as one of the sigla is a bit
of a moot point; I do know that it is often used to mark secondary
footnotes in 18th and 19th century books. Why the thing is on a Mac
keyboard I just don't know.
