Saving excel worksheet with several graphs to a *.htm file.   Files to be viewed with Chrome Browser.  

With the Excel 2010 Web Options set to allow VML, Chrome does not load the graph images.  There is one image (.png) file for each graph in the *_files folder associated with the *.htm file.

If the VML option is unchecked, Excel creates 2 copies of each image in the *_files folder associated with the *.htm file.  This works with Chrome, but the file is bloated because of the duplicate images.  See attached examples.

If the same page is created using Excel 2003, the duplicate image files are not created and Chrome works fine.

Is there a way to configure Excel 2010 to avoid the duplicate images and be compatible with Chrome? i.e. make it work like Excel 2003?
