4. Add following line into .emacs for change font menu to Unix style

(setq w32-use-w32-font-dialog nil)
5. Install BDF fonts
Reference: http:www.gnu.org/software/emacs/windows/faq5.html#windows-font
I. Download BDF fonts of ftp:ftp.gnu.org/gnu/intlfonts/intlfonts-1.2-split/16dots.tar.gz
Extract 16dots.tar.gz to a directory
i.e. i:/gnu/intlfonts-1.2
II. Set bdf font directory, add following lines into .emacs
; bdf font directory
(setq bdf-directory-list
'("i:/gnu/intlfonts-1.2/Asian" "i:/gnu/intlfonts-1.2/Chinese" "i:/gnu/intlfonts-1.2/Chinese.X"
"i:/gnu/intlfonts-1.2/Ethiopic" "i:/gnu/intlfonts-1.2/European" "i:/gnu/intlfonts-1.2/Japanese"
"i:/gnu/intlfonts-1.2/Japanese.X" "i:/gnu/intlfonts-1.2/Korean.X" "i:/gnu/intlfonts-1.2/Misc/"))
(setq w32-bdf-filename-alist
(w32-find-bdf-fonts bdf-directory-list))
III. Create fontset by add following lines into .emacs
(create-fontset-from-fontset-spec
"-*-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-16-*-*-*-c-*-fontset-bdf,
japanese-jisx0208:-*-*-medium-r-normal-*-16-*-*-*-c-*-jisx0208.1983-*,
katakana-jisx0201:-*-*-medium-r-normal-*-16-*-*-*-c-*-jisx0201*-*,
latin-jisx0201:-*-*-medium-r-normal-*-16-*-*-*-c-*-jisx0201*-*,
japanese-jisx0208-1978:-*-*-medium-r-normal-*-16-*-*-*-c-*-jisx0208.1978-*,
thai-tis620:-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--16-160-72-72-m-80-tis620.2529-1,
lao:-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--16-160-72-72-m-80-MuleLao-1,
tibetan-1-column:-TibMdXA-fixed-medium-r-normal--16-160-72-72-m-80-MuleTibetan-1,
ethiopic:-Admas-Ethiomx16f-Medium-R-Normal--16-150-100-100-M-160-Ethiopic-Unicode,
tibetan:-TibMdXA-fixed-medium-r-normal--16-160-72-72-m-160-MuleTibetan-0")
IV. Add bdf font to font-encoding-alist
;; Need to add some fonts to font-encoding-alist since the bdf fonts
;; are type 0 not the default type 1.
(setq font-encoding-alist
(append '(("MuleTibetan-0" (tibetan . 0))
("GB2312"        (chinese-gb2312 . 0))
("JISX0208"      (japanese-jisx0208 . 0))
("JISX0212"      (japanese-jisx0212 . 0))
("VISCII"        (vietnamese-viscii-lower . 0))
("KSC5601"       (korean-ksc5601 . 0))
("MuleArabic-0"  (arabic-digit . 0))
("MuleArabic-1"  (arabic-1-column . 0))
("MuleArabic-2"  (arabic-2-column . 0))) font-encoding-alist))
V. Set DBF font as default
(set-default-font "fontset-bdf")
6. Bonus option: add following line can change to a good background color, which is my favorite.
; Set background color
(set-background-color "mintcream")
