html exports are obsolete, we support them for legacy reasons, but they are not a primary target.
Favicons are still exported in html files BUT they have space for only one favicon and new favicons can be more than one per page. When possible we try to export a single icon, but in many cases it's no more possible.
In practice we can't make any promise related to exporting favicons to html, it may work or not depending on the page.
There may be some space for improvements, but this is far from being a priority.
Priority: -- → P3
