Default Enconding for the web - Square pixels vs Non Square Pixels

Hello, I am encoding Digital Video (720x576 DV-PAL, 25 fps, Pixel Aspect Ratio 1,067, Pixel Depth 32 Bit) which is the video I digitalized directly from the DV camera (miniDV) with Adobe Premiere Pro. I am now converting the footage to be used in the Internet (Flash Video .flv and mp4 .H264).
I finalize the editing and have now the final videos ready to put in the Internet. My question is:
Do I have to conform Pixel Aspect Ratio (of the edit videos) to square pixel?
I haven't done this and I converted the videos to .flv using Riva FLV Enconder and/or Flix Pro. The results are acceptable and can always increase the quality by increasing the video bitrate. But I have been reading that the videos used on the internet (to be displayed on computer monitors) must use square pixels. Do I have to concern with this? If yes, how can I encode the videos for the web in the right way?

note: after enconding to .flv the Sample Aspect Ratio (SAR) = 1,250 (5:4)
