Sure! (sorry for the delay)

The important keys are the following:

NT\CurrentVersion\FontLink\SystemLink","Microsoft Sans Serif"

NT\CurrentVersion\FontLink\SystemLink","Lucida Sans Unicode"

They are REG_SZ_MULTI type of either
"<font file ttc>:<font name>"  or "<Font file ttf>"

so for example windows sets (in inf format for Japanese Windows):

UI Gothic","gulim.ttc,gulim","SimSun.TTC,SimSun","mingliu.ttc,PMingLiU"

The glyphs will be found in order.  So if a glyph is missing from 
Tahoma, then it tries MSGOTHIC.TTC next, if still missing gulim.ttc and 
so on.  I do not have chinese windows to investigate but it may be that 
the order of the fonts is different. This may not be an issue on linux.

Any other questions just ask.
