I would suppose so -- just replace the div's .innerHTML field with other HTML. When I do that on one of my pages I see in the Java console:

Jmol applet jmolApplet0__68594828243417__ destroyed

So that should be that!

Has anybody figured out how to "unload" a Jmol applet from a window
and replace it with a picture?

I was asked this question on the SAGE (www.sagemath.org, open source
mathematics/algebra system) discussion lists.  Some people are running
in to memory constraints when they have lots of Jmol plots in the same
web worksheet.  So the idea is to keep only one or two active applets
in a page at a time.
