The pcb source uses various ``HID''s to draw things, so that
it can support multiple GUI's. It also exports pcb files by
the same mechanism, for example, as a PNG.

In the case of PNG, the exporter essentially pretends to
be a GUI, but instead of drawing components on the screen
it uses the gd library to draw in a file. An HTML5 exporter
would work in the same way; instead of drawing on the screen,
it would dump text to a .html file.

Assuming you don't need editing capability, this would be
very easy but very tedious to implement.
