Yes, readme is wrong.

Are they ? You could probably open an issue with minimal example so that we can see what can be done.
I think the goal is to keep cell in the order they appear.

> 3) next option (and probably the most natural) would be a html. But if I try I get the error at the end of this mail. I use ipython 0.13.1.rc2 shipped with Ubuntu Quantal. 

Is it julian Taylor PPA ? Last IPython master have a refactoring of css that moved files around, but it should fail on fbm.css and not boilerplate IIRC
Still it should work on 0.13.1 version.
Maybe Ubuntu ship boilerplate.css somewhere else in another package...

Can you tell us the content of 
if there is a style.min.css it imply you are on dev version of IPython

Do you have a 
folder? (Yes imply you are on dev version also)

We are rebuilding nbconvert from scratch right now, you can look at the "jinja template" Pull request if you want, but it is still experimental. 

If you can share your notebook isn't 
enough to share ?
