This patch changes default interface typeface of CJK from Mincho font to 
Gothic font.
Windows had made this change since Windows Vista. macOS and most of 
Linux distros are using Gothic typeface by default for CJK, too.
It will good to change it for Wine since we changed default Windows 
version to Windows 7.

And with this patch, we can add a font replacement for SimSun/MS UI 
Gothic/Gulim/PMingLiU to link it to a real Mincho font while we want to 
use Gothic font for GUI by default. This will help a lot when using Word 
to open some old .doc file which used Mincho font in it.
