Link is working, thanks! I spent some times with no luck on link as
well as unicode.org, because I wanted to find:
The list of Latin letters/symbols that Unicode has discovered.
Here, a letter/symbol with LATIN in its name in Unicode/ISO is a Latin
letter/symbol. And I call a "Latin letter/symbol" discovered by
Unicode if it created the name before ISO in the standard otherwise
discovered by ISO.
Can you email the list of Latin letters/symbols that Unicode discovered?
Can you also email list of letters/symbols that are not Latin but each
has LATIN in its name?

Can you email the list of these letters/symbols as well, including names?

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

I can point you to http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0080.pdf , which
includes a glyph for U+00AA, and
http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U2700.pdf , which includes a glyph for
U+271D. I don't think it's necessary to post these glyphs to the public

Most of the characters in the various parts of ISO 8859 were originally
standardized before Unicode or ISO 10646, so the names were probably
either created by the ISO/IEC subcommittees responsible for those parts,
or found in earlier standards and adopted as-is.
The merger between Unicode and ISO 10646 caused a few character names in
Unicode to be changed to match the 10646 names.
