Well getting this working in HTML sounds hard enough.  There's this:

<object type="image/jpeg"
  data="data:image/jpeg;3300,FF00,2756,E5A0,E3A0,22F6, ...etc... ">

If you can't get that working then you might have more luck embedding the image
data in some SVG and embedding the SVG in the html.

looks at this


and this code I found for MSIE:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<html xmlns:iSvg="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"

<object id="AdobeSVG" classid="clsid:78156a80-c6a1-4bbf-8e6a-3cd390eeb4e2">
<?import namespace="iSvg" implementation="#AdobeSVG"?>


id="xxx2" width="380" height="100" xmlns:svg="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">

	... svg code here ...
