[Bug 42926] Re: More granular font selection for the default install

(Although I kind of feel like I'm beating a dead horse here) I feel that
it's good for the system to have basic support for other scripts. I'm
just taking a couple of fonts included in the default install that will
add support for the most common scripts for documents and browsers—not
the full workup including IMEs and other software.

The reason is partially because I feel that the system would be
incomplete if some websites' contents spontaneously turned into squares
with hexadecimal character code indicators. Practically, it's also
because to get a font for a different script installed by default, one
needs to choose that as the system language during the install.
Translations into different languages are still far from perfect,
however. I presume some people are using English rather than their
native language for that reason.
