symbolize line endpoints only

I'm trying to symbolize only the line start and end points in arcmap 10. At location where two or more lines intersect I wind up with multiple endpoint symbols. How can I force the end point symbol of one line to overlap exactly with startpoint symbol of the next line? This line style will be used in a flex app.

Mapping Center Answer:

The diagram suggests that although the lines might appear to intersect, actually, the start and end points are not snapped to the same location.  You could resolve this by using the Snap (Editing) tools and the symbols should then overlap.

Alternatively, if you just want to give the impression of overlaps you could use Cartographic Representations to offset the symbols you use for the start and end-points, specifically, the tools for Moving feature representations.
