[IPython-User] Notebook: console is not defined

The IPython notebook assumes a pretty traditional, but extremely
modern web browser and I am guessing that Prism doesn't quite meet
that standard.  We use lots of cutting edge things like WebSockets and
the flexible box model.

The console variable is present on all modern browsers and prints
messages to the Javascript debugging console.  I don't foresee that we
would remove all calls to console.log anytime soon.

I am guessing you are running into other issues where Prism is not a
regular web browser.

You could surely investigate, but I don't think we want to support
Prism, especially if it is not maintained any longer.
