Some more examples from other East Asian countries (which are the main
part of the world where I'd expect to find non-ASCII font names), just
from picking random sites (and I only looked at 6 sites to find these):

http://panasonic.jp/ (which has its encoding declared in a META element)
refers to http://panasonic.jp/common/css/base.css (with no encoding
specified) , which contains

    font-family: "MS Pゴシック",Osaka;

http://tw.yahoo.com/ (which also has its encoding declared in a META
element) points to http://tw.yimg.com/i/tw/hp/b5.css (with no encoding
specified) which repeatedly declares:

    font-family:"新細明體", "mingliu", "taipei"
