Replacing a symbol

Hello,
I have an E-Book with numerous characters mistakenly replaced with the symbol /.
I would like to find and replace these, but ignore </p> of which there are many. If there is a solution, would appreciate any advice.
Thank you

Namespaces, hrefs, void tags: there's a world of issues any expression is probably going to run into.

Try this (should be better, although of course not perfect):
Code:
(?<!(<|/))/(?!(Styles|Images|Text|1999|2000|xhtml|TR|DTD|css|html|svg|xlink|p|/|>))

Thank you Becky, your first suggestion found 333 and your second 188, considerable less than the 7500 "/" I was first faced with.
Very much appreciated.
