you could do a circle with x in it but I agree with Markus.
I usually change the point icon for images used in presentations,
but when I first look at the data, x is quite convenient (I usually
reduce the size) especially if you have very dense points or
points in clusters (e.g. in the new data set even such standard
point data as geodetic points is quite dense along roads and
when first looking at the data, x defines the locations very well).
