Not quite right either.

IIRC you were talking about Latf. There are no characters
with the script property Latf. Fraktur text is written
by using (some of) the letters with the Latn script
property (and by using a Fraktur style font).

The MATHEMATICAL FRAKTUR characters have script property
'Common', and they are intended for use in mathematical
expressions only. They are NOT to be used to write text
in Fraktur style. I would think that that was what Ken
was thinking of. (I could be wrong, but I don't think
so in this case...)
