You're welcome!

Yes, in fact the .dtx generates files with § if compiled with 'latex 
paresse.ins', but it generates files with ^^a7 if compiled with 'latex 
-translate-file=empty.tcx paresse.ins', and this will be used in TeX Live.

Yes it's ok, in fact I said we needed TeX instead of LaTeX because I 
didn't know the '-translate-file=empty.tcx' option, now there is nothing 
to change.

Ok, many thanks! Can a CTAN maintainer install it?

Thank you,
