This can be done by adding the following entry in ~/.wine/system.reg
-- snip --
NT\\CurrentVersion\\FontLink\\SystemLink] 1150441842
-- snip --
This registry specifies that simsun should be used as a "fallback"
font for Tahoma in case the char is not present in Tahoma. Similarly,
you can also add font link for other fonts.
