    PNG-8 is pretty much like GIF, meaning it has limited colors, but it is
    compressed better. PNG-24 is full color. PNG-32 is full color with
    transparency. Unfortunately the latter is not properly supported by some
    browsers yet, so using it is not recommended. What as to PNG-8, I don't seem
    to remember any problems with it.

    PNG8 = 8 bit PNG file, i.e., super GIF. Works fine on web.
    PNG24 = 24 bit PNG file, i.e, GIF with millions of colors and 256 tranparent
    colors. Works partially on web, but filesize is usually large.
    Transparency is not supported by IE.
    PNG32 = FW native file. Not suitable for use on web.
