Good Day

 

Looking for general guidance when it comes to HTML pages being uploaded/hosted in SharePoint Online.  We know that such files (HTML) when uploaded to a document library most likely wont render correctly and changing the file extension to aspx may not be a guaranteed fix even though such pages are not mean for being in a Document Library.  Either way, ideally we like users to leverage the out of the box page set up, however we have found in some use cases HTML pages that users wish to save them in SharePoint sites for archival purposes not as a replacement for SharePoint Online pages. Maybe its best to avoid HTML pages altogether in SPO? Thanks for the advice.

IMHO those HTML pages should render OK in the SPO and ODFB File Viewer. If that's not the case, it's better to think on using just modern SPO pages
