that "weird" character is a symbol for marking Notes and Warnings on
the page margins visually in the pdf version -- it just fails
completely on that. I just changed the preamble so it automatically
gets removed when generating html. I'll commit this later today.

sorry, but I haven't looked into that yet. Upon a quick look it seems
to me as every specially marked item (like the above mentioned Warning
b's) gets a new style. But as far as I can see we could overwrite most
stuff globally, which would give us the option of using a nice
stylesheet (for online browsing -- maybe adjusting it so it matches
the rockbox website) and adding an alternate stylesheet (for printing,
visually impaired people, ... -- I know there are css elements for
text speaking, but as I haven't used them I have no idea how useful
that could be).
