[X3D-Public] Web3D.org Front Page

Sorry Joe but it doesn't work at all in Firefox or IE 8.

To start with you need a Browser Sniffer, that then inserts the Object/Embed tag using Javascript, try the NIST site for this. Its the only way around IE's ActiveX sandbox.

The scene renders funny in Instant Player, I think its a bug in Instant Player itself. No logical reason why but the zdepth is set to some tiny number.
