Latin script in Unicode

Latin characters in UnicodeLatin ExtendedUnicode Latin
Other scripts support many different writing systems; for example, the Latin script supports English, French, German, Italian, Vietnamese, Latin itself, and several other languages.
In addition, a number of Latin-like characters are encoded in the Currency Symbols, Control Pictures, CJK Compatibility, Enclosed Alphanumerics, Enclosed CJK Letters and Months, Mathematical Alphanumeric Symbols, and Enclosed Alphanumeric Supplement blocks, but although they look like Latin letters they have the script property of common, and so do not belong to the Latin script in Unicode terms.
