    Well, not necessarily from the end-user (although end-users can use custom
    style sheets):

    In your HTML:

    <span lang="ja" xml:lang="ja">紅葉</span>

    In your CSS:

    :lang(ja) {
      font-family: 'メイリオ', Meiryo, 'MS Pゴシック', 'MS PGothic', sans-serif;

    So for Tifinagh I guess lang="ber-Tfng" might work?
