I'd tend to use "(X)" for circled character "X" and "((X))" for double-circled 
character "X".  I know this introduces ambiguity with parenthesized versions, 
but I think that's bound to happen when you reduce everything to ASCII 
representations.  For example, I think "(y)" says "circled y" better than the 
"y-o" that's currently the Lynx replacement for character U+24e8.

Regarding the negative circled characters (e.g. U+24eb), the general "rule" in 
Lynx is to "double up" or capitalize to mean darker/stronger (e.g. U+260e, 
U+260f).  So I'd suggest "(((X)))" as representations in those cases.
