Thanks for catching that obvious error.  Correction:

accessType Definitions

accessType determines whether a field corresponds to event input, event output, or persistent state information. Events are strictly typed values with a corresponding timestamp. ROUTE connections must match accessType between source field and target field.

    initializeOnly: can be initialized, but cannot send or receive events. This is usually the case for fields that are considered too computationally expensive to change at run time.
    inputOutput: can be initialized, and can also send or receive events.
    inputOnly: cannot be initialized or included in a scene file, but can receive input event values via a ROUTE.
    outputOnly: cannot be initialized or included in a scene file, but can send output event values via a ROUTE.

X3D accessType design keeps 3D graphics rendering fast and interactive, also helping to keep X3D players small and lightweight.

super, I hope it is useful.  Again thanks for your review and correction.

all the best, Don
