OK, I don't know how to do it yet, though I've been prodding around the edges of this intriguing mystery. Here's a photo of a squirrel. If you click on the photo, you get a page describing the photo of the squirrel. The very same file is both an image when embedded and a web page when viewed through a browser. I imagine it has something to do with combining files - I tried using the same technique described here, to combine a zip file and a jpg image - but it didn't work. But it's probably something pretty simply like that. Inquiring minds want to know more.
