I cannot recreate the above behaviour:
browsing with 2.8(1dev.6) of test/sgml.html and test/unicode.html
(searching "/" for 2276) shows up the standard error handling
(no substitution garbage). In which circumstance did you got garbage?
maybe there was some kind of header outside of SGML text, like URL?).

Yes, 0x2276 is not known for def7_uni.tbl currently, we may easily add
or something like this, if necessary.

>From the other hand, there are still few strange characters like 0x200A
which are _known_ by def7_uni.tbl but report error handling
instead of promised substitution. This is a bug.
