Check out John Deck's blogg.
Google map's projection is Mercator, but uses lat long as units (rather
than metres). I think there's something that Mapserver does with
bounding boxes that other WMS don't do. I haven't successfully got a WMS
overlaid correctly using my mapserver WMSs (3.6.1 and 4.0). I've got
close using John Deck's method, but suffer tile alignment issues that
don't affect other WMS servers.
Might also be worth checking out Mapbuilder. I understand they have a
accurate than the one John Deck uses.

but whatever I seem to do in mapserver, I get incorrect results..
I using OGRINFO on one of my MI .TAB files the projection info is...
Any help greatly appreciated.
