If I understand what you mean, you can explicitly display HTML fragments
with a Python cell like this:

from IPython.core.display import HTML

You can use a templating system like Jinja2 or Mako to assemble the HTML if
you want. You can also give classes a _repr_html_ method to give instances
an HTML representation.
