Of course it can be done. Just use UTF-8 encoding and use U+2800 ..
U+28FF characters.  The problem however is that the browser will need a
braille font to render them properly.  On a proper Linux installation
there will be at least a clearlyU font or so that has it.  On a windows
system it's far less clear.  You can however provide a font on your
website so users can install them, for instance UBraille.ttf:
