Sorry. We had some problems with the popup-code and removed it.
It opens a new page now and you can easily look at the source-code
with "View Source".

You just need one extra line somewhere in your (X)html page:

  <script type="text/javascript" src="http://x3dom.org/x3dom/release/x3dom.js 
" />

Everything else will be done automatically. All you deal with is
the X3D-content. This is importent since we will change some of
the underlying javascript code soon.

A full example (with CCS style) looks like this:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd 
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
         <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://x3dom.org/x3dom/release/x3dom.css 
" />

     <h1>Hello World</h1>

         <X3D xmlns="http://www.web3d.org/specifications/x3d- 
namespace"  showStat="false" showLog="false" x="0px" y="0px"  
width="400px" height="400px" altImg="helloX3D-alt.png">
             <Viewpoint position='0 0 10' />
                     <Material diffuseColor='0.603 0.894 0.909' />
                 <Box />

         <script type="text/javascript" src="http://x3dom.org/x3dom/release/x3dom.js 
" />


Just open the attached file in your webGL-enabled FireFox or WebKit  
(more info on the browser support: http://www.x3dom.org/?page_id=9)

More info about the CSS-styling will be on the web-page  
(www.x3dom.org) soon

best regards

> Cheers, Lars.
