Most of them don't use python at all, and won't actually need to interact with the notebook; they are merely viewing my notebook as a report and don't have ipython.

I guess this is because the css is served by your computer on

which the others computer can't connect to.

You can try to print the "print-wiew" as a PDF and mail it. 

or look at http://github.com/ipython/nbconvert

./nbconvert --format [ html | pdf | est ] myfile.ipynb
which should make a html and media folder you can email.

with some tweak you should be able to have the images still inlined into the html file.

We already have a 0.13.1 released ?
