You can directly specify the hex code shown in Windows built-in Character 
Map in FrameMaker dialog boxes. For example, the Windows icon in Wingdings 
is reported in the Character Map as "Character code: 0xFF". In FrameMaker, 
Autonumber Format box, use \xFF to refer to the same character; it will 
show in the document as the Windows icon if the font defined for the 
autonumber is Wingdings.

[ Starting with FM6.0, the FrameMaker Character Sets PDF has some 
inaccuracies --see http://www.microtype.com/Hmmms.html#0312 . The Windows 
Character Map is recommended instead ]
