Holy shit! Welcome on board!!!!!

Gee, did you know that created Cocoon almost to do exactly that? Yes,
people, the first person who asked "what is this Cocoon stuff?" (I think
it was Pier) I told him: "think about it: you can have VRML graphs and
HTML tables from the same XML document."

Yes, man, I've been dreaming of a "real" use of VRML since day 1 I heard
about it (when I was writing my 3D engine for demos in x86 assembly that
was killed by 3D acceleration boards :(

Anyway, I'll be _more_ than happy to add X3D examples in Cocoon when you
have them.

Happy like a baby :) (3D was my hobby before java and the web :)
