You don't need an expensive solution for that.  Mif2Go, at
$295 per seat, lets you map any character in any font, or 
group of fonts, to a graphic, or indeed to any HTML or XML 
code you please.  See the User's Guide, par. 20.5.6, "Mapping 
characters in a special font", for the details.  For example:

; Frame font name = section to use for mapping chars in that font
Wingdings = WingChars

; char n maps to a square bullet, char p to a graphic:
n = x25a0
p = <img src="emptybox.gif">

You can download the free unlimited demo version of Mif2Go,
and the User's Guide in numerous formats, from:
