Are these labels of polygons? If so, label placement of polygons is at the
mercy of the MapGuide renderer because it will not draw any polygon labels
which do not "fit" in the area they are supposed to be drawn.

The classic workaround is to have a separate point layer with the label
data. Your point Layer Definition would be set to only style the point's
label and not its geometry. These points would be the centroids of your
polygons. If you have AutoCAD Map, it can easily create these centroid
datasets for you.
