Mapping MS Shell Dlg to MS UI Gothic at runtime requires font linking to
be implemented, and it isn't in Wine, so we need to specify the font
manually for Far East languages (Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese
and Traditional Chinese).
Font linking is where the GDI character drawing functions look at the
font and see that the specified character is not present in the font and
automatically load another font to use instead of drawing the square
that you would have previously have seen.
