I have a street map (MuliLineString geom and house numbers min and max, left and right).

I would like to show this numbers on the street corners. I use GeoServer.

If I use the TextSymbolizer with LinePlacement the label is in the middle of the line.
If I use it with Geometry (startPoint and endPoint function) I can't move it in parallel. (All the labels are at the same point.)

Have you any idea?

In which software you are displaying the house numbers ? ex. Open layer etc. – Sunil Jan 10 '13 at 10:31
can you add a picture of what happens when you use start/end Point - as that is the way I was going to suggest – iant Jan 10 '13 at 10:40
Here is my map: The first rule is for red street (startPoint < endPoint), the second is for green (endPoint > startPoint) – Kata Jan 10 '13 at 10:51
