Did you had a look at iframe ?
I'm a little low on bandwidth, but it's still on my todo list, 
If you think it is not possible, I won't try.


I did try d3 once, and came across a bug from time to time, making the d3 command updating the DOM but not the html view on chrome when runned through IPython (my guess is a running condition with jQuery)…

Just to tell you that if you don't see anything it might not be your fault.
