The HTML file format cannot embed images, except for data: URIs, which Word does not support.

You could use the MHTML format.

An example of such a data URI looks like the following. However, as SLaks already said, this is not supported by Word.

<html>
    <head>
        <title></title>
    </head>
    <body>
