Customize your fontset to specify that font for the charset for which
Emacs by default doesn't use it.  You will have to add charsets as you
find them, there's no useful way of specifying a font for all of
them.  Moreover, specifying that font for any charset is probably not
a good idea, since no font covers all of Unicode.
