Hi Thomas,
Thanks for these suggestions.  It has occurred to me that the simplest 
thing would probably be to simply attach an HTML file to the page and 
link to it.  That will likely be my starting point, as I've spent too 
much of my time on software stuff in the last several days.  Have to get 
some other stuff done before I do any more development, and my next 
development project is probably to get pandas to read CERN ROOT files
