To cull the faces, use solid="true" for IndexedFaceSet (and other 
geometry nodes with faces). This is already the default in X3D actually. 
Use ccw="false" to flip which side is culled (default is ccw="true" in 
X3D). The relevant spec part is "11.2.3 Common geometry fields", on 

Hope this helps,
