I have one theory to explain why non-latin font-family name raise problem.
Take Chinese true type font for example, I guess its font-family name is stored in Big5 or GB encoding, not Unicode or UTF-8. For Windows XP not supporting Big5 or GB code page internally, it's naturally that these font-family name will result in "????".
I don't have the knowledge to verify my theory, it's just my conjecture.

Some background info:
Big5 encoding scheme is used for Traditional Chinese glypgs, and GB encoding scheme for Simplified Chinese glyphs. The above "華康儷中宋" are Traditional Chinese glyphs, and "汉鼎繁古印" are Simplified Chinese glyphs.
