I am by no means the expert that these guys are, but this may be my chance to contribute something... This is a Mapserver Issue. I pasted a sample section from a mapfile of mine. The "POSITION auto" and "ANGLE auto" part gets you the correct orientation, the font has to be a font defined in the FONTSET line. This is a nice looking font with an outline. Below here I have pasted what my fontset.txt file looks like.
CONNECTION "host=localhost dbname=xxxxx user=xxx password=xxxxxx"
DATA "wkb_geometry from ny_nyc_cl using unique ogc_fid"
COLOR 200 200 200
OUTLINECOLOR 255 255 255
COLOR 0 0 255
Here is what my fontset.txt file looks like. Each line has an entry for an alias and a location for the ttf file for each font.

Can anyone give me a heads up on how to do street names? This is probably a mapserver issue and not this product specifically but you guys seem to know you stuff.
Any examples would be especially appreciated.
