Hmmm, I thought that diamond icon is a usual way to
represent milestones. With respect to intersecting task bar
and milestone line, if your task must meet the milestone,
you create dependency task-milestone and milestone will be
shifted automatically; if it doesn't have to meet the
milestone, you probably don't need to see the intersection.
Furthermore, milestone which is shown as a vertical line may
be confusing on charts which are several pages height when
printed. Imagine that on some page you see a vertical black
line without any additional information. It is a milestone
which you created three pages above :). But it is absolutely
not obvious. To avoid such situations it is necessary to
print some additional information in the chart legend on the
top of page which will probably make the legend overloaded
Anyway, we'll consider imlementing the option of drawing
milestones as vertical lines but with low priority. IMHO,
dependency between tasks and milestones and good behavior of
the group (task,milestone,dependency) is much better.

I can see your point about how it will be confussing.
At the moment I have the milestone sitting above the task
The a milestone is at 50% of the task. When I try to make a
dependency between the 2 the milestone shifts to either the
start or end of the tasks due to the start-finish relationships
I'll just leave the diamond floating above.
