This one is known as "long s" and included in UNicode: U+017F

This is an aesthetic ligature of c and t, and
should be represented by the characters "ct".

u with tilde is U+0169 (lc) and U+0168 (capital)

Never seen this one. However, g with tilde is used as
a character of the alphabet of Guarani (Paraguay). This should
be included into UNicode, if it isn't already.

To my surprise I couldn't locate e with tilde in my
UNicdoe 2.0 book.

P.S. You want to buy a copy of the UNicode standard 3.0 as soon as
it is available in the book shops (shouldn't be long)
