Hi Matthias, thank for you feedback...

I was experimenting in the notebook with no successful results.

Let me paste a little code to explain more deeply...

Essentially, I follow your guidelines... I select a cell marked as a 
fragment and pass it to JSON.
I created a new div prepended to the 'div#notebook-container'
Then I create a new code cell (I took the "kernel" status from the 
current cells, is there a better way to do it?) and pass back from JSON 
to this new "ccell".
Finally, I append the "ccell.element" to the new div...
In this way, I get the a copy of the cell but it is not executable...
If I do the same, but instead of appending the "ccell.element" to the 
new div, I append it to the 'div#notebook-container', the cell is 
executable again... so I think I am losing the DOM again...
(ah... in both cases I get the cell, but the input form is minimized and 
you have to click on it to expand it and write content... but this is 
not the main problem... just a detail for now...)

var cells = IPython.notebook.get_cells();
var jcell;
for(var i in cells){
   var cell = cells[i];
     if (cell.metadata.slideshow.slide_type == 'fragment') {
       jcell = cell.toJSON();

$('div#notebook-container').prepend('<div id="slide"></div>');

var kernel = cells[0].kernel
var ccell = new IPython.CodeCell(kernel);


Any insights?
