Hello Artem,

OK thanks for that. The demo works (running on dev server).  Will try it with 
mine (may be tomorrow now)

BTW about my other reply I *think* I did tell it to link the name attribute 
after all - seems that the name="name" below links to the name attribute.

<TextSymbolizer name="name" face_name="Bitstream Vera Sans Roman" size="16" 
fill="#000" halo_radius="2" wrap_width="0"/>
