Since you already have screenshot.png available as an image file,
there is no need to have LaTeX2HTML recreate an image for your
HTML pages; simply use the one that you have already.

The best way to acive this is to use a macro in your document source,
but have that macro expand differently, depending on the TeX engine
processing the document.

your source should read something like:

A view of the screen is given below, in figure~\ref{screenA}.
In this one sees .....

\caption{A view of .....}

In the preamble to your document, or in a separate input file,
use code like:


Notice how the \htmladdimg command (from  \usepackage{html} ) allows  you
to specify all the meta-information about how to image is to be handled
in the HTML file, including alignment, WIDTH/HEIGHT and ALT-text attributes.
