That's the same situation as in Mac OS X, or any other operating  
system: no-one (maybe except of BeOS) offers native support for PDF  
in the HTML browser, because the browsers themselves do not implement  
functionality to read and display PDF – they need a plug-in,  
everywhere. So it's best to use PNG format – or another HMTL  
supported format like TIFF, GIF, SVG.

PDF is incompatible with latex, i.e. when producing DVI output. And  
this is still the basis from which TeX4ht creates the HTML output.

And scaling of the embedded graphics is needed, the same that pdfTeX  
or whatever applies.
