Is the section symbol \S supported in cmbright? If not, how can I get a sans-serif section symbol? The MWE gives me a serif version.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{cmbright}

\begin{document}
The section character \S\ is not rendering sans-serif.
\end{document}
  • The § character is taken from the math symbol font, when the output encoding is OT1 (as in your example); the font used is cmbrs10 which is essentially a copy of cmsy10, the math symbol font of Computer Modern. – egreg Jul 1 '14 at 8:28

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{cmbright}

\begin{document}
The section character \S\ is not rendering sans-serif.
\end{document}

gives a sans serif version:

If not then have a look into your log file. There must be a warning if a charcter is not available in a specific font. I used an up-to-date TeXLive 2014
