Indeed, this works, but it requires two things which are undesireable:
extra typing for every figure I produce, and saving the PDF rendering of
the figure off to a local file.
The local file thing is troublesome for me for a stupid reason: Our
collaboration's meeting-slides posting mechanism (which is a huge kludgy
bunch of perl CGI scripts written and modified over the course of the
last (at least) 12 years) archives posted files, but does not follow
links (not even local/relative links) in HTML when archiving. So, if we
post a webpage with <img> or <a> tags that reference files in the same
directory, all the links and images break after archiving. OTOH, if the
figures (and downloaded figures in <a> tags with the "download"
attribute set) are embedded in the HTML file as "data:" URIs, then
archiving works just fine.
There is a very nice mechanism in the notebook already whereby the
base64 encoded PNG or SVG data is sent to the web browser and included
work / which files should I read to learn how it works and thus how to
change it to suit my purposes? I'm working from dev from github.
