There is no such thing as an html file when it comes to graphics.
HTML is a markup language consisting of plain text surrounded by
<body>This is a markup</body>
Browsers such as Explorer or Firefox render that markup language and
have the ability to render images of certain formats when referred to
by that language.
PNG is one of those formats, so in effect, it IS an "html file". GIF
files are another format. As far as remaining the same size, an image
of any size, if converted to another format will change size, either
bigger or smaller and if you consider a file extension as part of the
name, only PNG files have the extention png, others might be gif.
