Thanks for the update Darren.

I'm going to be looking into this issue once I get some data into my local SQL Server 2008 instance.

Fonts as point symbols should work. There are 2 options.

1) Create a Symbol Library and add the fonts to it.
2) From the Point layer reference the font directly. This may have an issue if the font you are trying to use doesn't exist on the server, but it does in Studio. There may also be an issue on Vista as the default font style for the layer may not exist in the Vista font libraries.

I finally got the Views of SQL to work with MapGuide.
Autodesk MapGuide Studio 2009 did NOT work. It would not allow me to choose
the geometry fields (GPS lat/lon).
MapGuide Maestro DOES ALLOW me to choose the correct field.
Using Maestro, I was able to correctly set up my view and see my data.  It
seems that using Fonts as Point Symbols is not yet supported, so either
designing in MapGuide Studio or directly in XML is my solution.

My problem has been solved!  Thanks!
