You could deal with this via CSS3 Fonts by delivering a font that you 
know has the desired glyphs.

Assuming you were to have a library of fonts or able to make your own 
fonts, this would also give you a bit more of the desired freedom; I 
don't think it would accommodate multi-color bullets though. I wonder if 
SVG fonts allow for multiple colors...
