[IPython-dev] A 'static demo' mode for the notebook, so we could keep a more visible version of the examples up?

I believed this would be a great solution until we get a more robust 
conversion tool for IPython Notebooks.

Currently, I am working in a html static view for the notebooks but more 
work have to be done to get it like I/we want.
The app I am developing (IPViewer) is featured with html views and html 
presentation slides for the IPython notebooks (you can see the 
screenshots attached for the html static view and the html5slides).
I hope to get it done soon (I am integrating video recording now...), 
but much work has to be done yet to get the "perfect" html stactic view, 
so I will work more on this to contribute a little bit to the project.
