Set fonts for each Unicode block

In Firefox one can set fonts for each language/writing system (eg. Arial for Latin, Palatino for Greek etc.). I like when every web page is set in one font, hence I check off the "allow pages to choose their own fonts". But today many websites use metro icons stored in the "Private Use Area" Unicode block of a font. To render these icons there exist special fonts (eg. Segoe UI Symbol in Windows, or free Font Awesome). But if custom fonts are not allowed, these icons are never displayed. If I allow then icons are displayed but text also is shown in a custom font (which I most probably wouldn't like). Then how to set a font per a Unicode block? Eg. Arial for "Basic Latin" and "Latin-1", Palatino for "Greek and Coptic" and "Greek Extended", Segoe UI Symbol for "Private Use Area" etc.
