  Hi again

I have seen, that nominatim now gives an icon for search results like in 
this example:

<place place_id='10714' osm_type='node' osm_id='17328659' 
boundingbox="48.0588264465332,48.3187141418457,16.2443943023682,16.5288238525391" 
lat='48.2092252' lon='16.3736665' display_name='Wien, Vienna, 
Österreich, Europa' class='place' type='city' 
icon='http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/images/mapicons/poi_place_city.p.20.png'/>

The icon is something like a flag.
The _BASE_ of the flag should show the location.

Sometimes there are other icons that use the  _CENTER_ of the icon to 
descibes a location.

If the icon uses the base I have to move the icon like:
top=-iconheight

If the center is usered I have to move the icons like:
top=-iconheight/2

How can my program know where to move the icon?

I hope you are able to understand the question.

Here you can try this:

(search and mouseover)
