Oops, sorry.  Long ago, for already forgotten reason, I
introduced the feature of using t for the default fontset,
but, it seems that the necessity disappeared before I
documented it.

I think nil is better than t for specifying the default

I've just documented that NAME nil means the default fontset
in functions of fontset.c, and fixed term/w32-win.el.
