John, thanks for identifying this work.

Luc, merci beaucoup de toutes ces choses.  Thanks for all this work.

It would certainly be great if we were able to publish X3D models
as part of Wikipedia pages.

Am thinking it would be a fairly simple matter to write an
XSLT stylesheet that converts X3D syntax to Wiki3D syntax.
Wondering if that is of interest?

Use this extension to render x3d content directly in MediaWiki. All content between <x3d> and </x3d> tags is passed to a Java applet. No additional plugin is required on the client side.

Wiki3D uses <Wiki3D></Wiki3D> tags. The 3D description language is based on simple object primitives: cone, sphere, cylinder, box.
