A complete description of the character (fontcap) tables,
including the character encodings, can be found at:

If you are wanting simply to add a character to an existing fontcap
defining filled fonts, then you would want to read the
"Character outline class" in the above.

Warning: you will have to be a particularly patient person to wade through
this to be successful.
