It's possible, but the rewrite rules would be a mess.
WordPress uses PHP not HTML.
Wordpress uses PHP to generate html. To be clear, everything you read on the page you are currently looking at is html. It is the language of your web browser. However you generate it, it is generated. This is why WP can be ungodly slow. It takes time to run php to read a database for all sorts of data that it jams together, using a theme, to generate the pretty html pages.
