For custom shape, you need to create an image to look like it and apply the following:

(I borrow an image from http://unicode.org/reports/tr25/tr25-8-glyphs/diamsmf.gif as an illustration)
<style type="text/css">
<!--
ul{list-style-type:none}
li{padding-left:20px;background: transparent url(http://unicode.org/reports/tr25/tr25-8-glyphs/diamsmf.gif) no-repeat -10px 50%}
//-->
</style>
<ul>
<li>One</li>
<li>Two</li>
</ul>

Thanks, but I should have been more clear.

I am not trying to create a list.  I just need the dot in the middle of a sentence.
Can you just copy and paste it? ý
Oops. Maybe you should copy it from here http://forums.macosxhints.com/archive/index.php/t-63934.html. Make sure you set content type like this in the head section:

<meta content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" http-equiv="Content-Type"/>
