See the following for the (*many*) differences between characters with the
Latin script, and those with LATIN in their names.
I'd suggest taking a more focused approach to learning about the standard,
rather than trying relatively scattershot questions to this list. You might
read through at least the first 3 chapters of the Unicode Standard, plus the
Scripts UAX. These are all online for free at unicode.org.
