It seems to me that the proper conclusion is "The 'Push to Kindle' function you are using does not properly handle pages using JavaScript". There doesn't seem to be any logical reason why it would be impossible to push the page to wherever, using the HTML that is being displayed at the moment the function is activated (just reading out the innerHTML of the page body). Reverting to the page source is just crappy. It should certainly be possible to push these pages to a Kindle, using proper software.

The buttons are actually HTML, but the trick I used is to put everything specific to the interactive version in a <div> section that has style="display:none", and then have JavaScript alter that style to "display:inherit" in the startup code. That way the diagram definition, and other stuff that would not work without JavaScript (such as the buttons), will not show up if JavaScript is disabled, and will be replaced by the static .png image in <noscript> tags.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
