How to select and assign a font to marker characters used in SGRENDER templates?

Hi, I have the following question:

I want to use an observation dependent marker symbol in a scatter plot. For this purpose, I use the MARKERCHARACTER option in my template and assign a variable in my input data that contains the marker character. This works fine as long as I use simple keyboard characters such as + and #. However, I want to use special characters (such as filled and open circles) and they must be correctly displayed in the HTML / PNG output. How do I do that, i.e. what characters can I assign in a data step, and what font family (?) do I have to assign using the  MARKERCHARACTERATTRS option in the template so that the special characters are correctly displayed in the output?
