You do realize that HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language right?
Adding a markup language to a markup language is illogical, it is better
to improve the existing markup language or create a new markup language

This sounds overtly complicated. Also if things are purely bitmaps then
that would cause issues with screen readers, there are enough issues
with tables as it is, if they become bitmaps they'll be a huge pain in
the ass (more than currently).
By the sound of it these file types are container formats, why would you
put a PNG image file inside a container file? Server side filetype
negotiation would need to be redesigned to handle this as well.
Perhaps HTML imports is what could be the solution you are seeking (or
needing), it's still a draft though
But Mozilla has decided to not support it (that was in 2014 though).
"The import statement is used to import functions, objects or primitives
that have been exported from an external module, another script, etc."
And sounds closer to some of the stuff you mentioned by the sound of it.
Chrome an Firefox should support import, and Edge is in the process of
But the specs are still not complete yet as far as I can tell.
A "modular" web page where a header and footer and menu and other parts
can reside in different files without the need for server side scripting
is very close.
In the meantime have you tried iframe with the seamless attribute and
