It works fine for me without setting anything special. My IMAGETYPE is
set to PNG24.
Setting the imageformat in the METADATA of a layer also works fine -

Although my PNG shows fine under FireFox, I couldn't get it to work
under IE. The PNG hack code in ka-map is currently broken and doesn't
even get called. I tried to enable it but that didn't help much.
