Try calling display(HTML("your html")).  See:

display() causes your Python object to be displayed on the frontend (e.g.
in the notebook).  IPython normally displays last item in the cell / return
value for you automatically, but you can call display() directly to force
an object (other than the last item) to be displayed.

For example:

I hope this is helpful.
